gdb on macOS 10.12 "Sierra"

Hi,

Has anyone succeeded yet in getting gdb to work on macOS 10.12?  
Reportedly, it works when you disable SIP (which is understandable,  
given  
https://developer.apple.com/library/content/documentation/Security/Conceptual/System_Integrity_Protection_Guide/RuntimeProtections/RuntimeProtections.html ), but plain code signing no longer seems to cut  
it.

With gdb 7.11.1, I occasionally get this when I try to start an inferior:
	During startup program terminated with signal SIG113, Real-time event 113.

and usually (with darwin_debug_flag set to 100 -- didn't manage to get  
the SIG113 anymore after I recompiled gdb with that variable set to  
100):

***

gdb is code signed, the code signing certificate is the System  
keychain and set to "Trust always".

Thanks,


Jonas
