I think your problem is that in order to build gdb, you also need to
have already built bfd, mmalloc, readline, and various other bits and
bobs.

The simplest thing to do is to build the whole lot in one go - it
takes a long time and a lot of disk space but is easier all round.

You want to say:

% mkdir /gnuwin32/b18/build
% cd /gnuwin32/b18/build
% ../cdk/configure 
% make

Cheers!
