I am working on porting the GNU Debugger for Xtensa Architectures. I 
tried porting GDB 7.5.91 and could compile it successfully.
When I try to run it however, I get:

shell> gdb --version
gdb: /lib/ no version information available (required by gdb)
GNU gdb (GDB) 7.5.91

This GDB was configured as "--host=i686-pc-linux-gnu --target=xtensa-elf".
For bug reporting instructions, please see:

Now, my system is Fedora 12 and my suspicion is that GDB compiles 
assuming a library version that is higher than what my system has. I 
wanted to know where inside the GDB source code could I get information 
about version information.
