Hi Yann, all!

The has_or_warn part() of my new patch is ready. Do you prefer the
do_debug_gdb_prepare() that you proposed above, or rather something
like the following?

comment "Cross-gdb - disabled (requires expat)"
    depends on !CONFIGURE_has_expat

cconfig GDB_CROSS
    prompt "Cross-gdb"
    default y
    depends on CONFIGURE_has_expat
      Build and install a cross-gdb for the target, to run on host.

I don't see the point of allowing the user to choose a configuration
that will fail as soon as the build starts.
