   I have used a beta version of gdb (thanks to Scott Howard) for
   powerpc-eabi which had the "ocd
   reg" command to set SPRs.  This command does not appear in Insight.

   Is this command officially part of GDB or is there another way to set
   for powerpc processors.

This must be part of some patches that Scott or somebody owes me; I'm
pretty sure gdb-patches hasn't gotten any submissions for anything
like an ocd regs command.  Since the registers are only accessible via
special instructions, one would need GDB mods.

   Do the Insight snaphots use the latest versions of GDB ?  (latest
   released versions or latest snapshots ?).

Insight snapshots are a superset of the GDB snapshot made on the
same day.
