FYI, input/output redirection works as it should in GDB 4.18 as well,
if you download and install the binary distribution available from the
DJGPP sites:

Please post the the exact sequence of commands you typed at the
command prompt, beginning with the commands you used to unpack the
distribution, and any messages you saw in response.

One possibility is that you invoked the above command from the wrong
directory (the leading slash suggests that).  You need to invoke it
from the top-level directory created when you unpacked the
distribution.  That directory is called gdb-5.0.  You need to chdir
there and type this:

	  sh ./gdb/config/djgpp/
