            Bug ID: 21500
           Summary: gdb sizeof(long int)=4 but gcc sizeof(long int)=8 on
           Product: gdb
           Version: 7.10.1
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: build
          Assignee: unassigned at sourceware dot org
          Reporter: jrose.manila at gmail dot com
  Target Milestone: ---
              Host: CYGWIN_NT-10.0 Caroline-2 2.8.0(0.309/5/3) 2017-04-01
                    20:47 x86_64 Cygwin
            Target: x86_64 Cygwin

gcc sizeof(long)=8 but gdb sizeof(long)=4 on current x86_64-pc-cygwin.
Consistency between gdb and gcc is required for any given platform.

The gdb build appears to be incorrect for x86_64-pc-cygwin. Tested with gcc
5.4.0 and gdb 7.10.1 (current cygwin versions) on x86_64-pc-cygwin running
under Windows 10.

Please refer to https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=80777 for
discussion whether gcc or gdb is incorrectly configured. In particular
comment-8 there.

Also refer to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=518712 which
describes the same issue under Linux. Repeating the same test described in
comment-1 there when run under x86_64-pc-cygwin gets the wrong answer:
