I just got gdb-971126 installed on linux.

Can you please preserve the dates on distributions?
Its often helpful (and should be easy).

Whats the compile time  difference between gdbtk and gdb?

I'm using my tk8.0 shared libraries, and I see the only differences
is the makefiles and gdbtk.c/gdbtk.tcl.

Also, doing make dvi gave me:

Runaway argument?

I never understood why one date on the manual is January 1994.
Why have two dates?
