 I'm not a VxWorks user, but here is what I have seen...

 The 'remote-vxppc.c' (probably it would be with this name) seems to be missing from
the GDB sources -- there are equivalents like 'remote-vxmips.c', 'remote-vxm68k.c' etc.
for other CPUs to serve as the model, but nobody hasn't yet taken this job for
PowerPC/VxWorks... Defining the PPC-specific packets in some header in the 'vxshare'
subdir, defining the commands to get the CPU-registers from the VxWorks/PPC - GDB-stub
etc. are the problems I remember...

 Anyway a VxWorks owner would have much better possibilities to implement these things.
Perhaps asking about the GDB-VxWorks/PPC connection in the 'comp.sys.vxworks' NG could
give more reasonable answers, the other VxWorks users probably are hooked there...

Cheers, Kai
