[PATCH][gdb/build] Fix gdbserver build with -fsanitize=thread

Hi,

When building gdbserver with -fsanitize=thread (added to CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS) we
run into:
...
ld: ../libiberty/libiberty.a(safe-ctype.o): warning: relocation against \
  `__tsan_init' in read-only section `.text'
ld: ../libiberty/libiberty.a(safe-ctype.o): relocation R_X86_64_PC32 \
  against symbol `__tsan_init' can not be used when making a shared object; \
  recompile with -fPIC
ld: final link failed: bad value
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [libinproctrace.so] Error 1
...
which looks similar to what is described in commit 78e49486944 ("[gdb/build]
Fix gdbserver build with -fsanitize=address").

The gdbserver component builds a shared library libinproctrace.so, which uses
libiberty and therefore requires the pic variant.  The gdbserver Makefile is
setup to use this variant, if available, but it's not there.

Fix this by listing gdbserver in the toplevel configure alongside libcc1, as a
component that needs the libiberty pic variant, setting:
...
extra_host_libiberty_configure_flags=--enable-shared
...

Tested on x86_64-linux.

OK for trunk gcc?

Thanks,
- Tom
