gdb does have support for PEs (since there are Windows versions of gdb). Unix
builds don't usually have it compiled in, though you only need to change one
line of the gdb souce to enable it, see:
gdb doesn't support any of the debugging formats used by MS tools, but you
can instead compile your program with a version of gcc that targets Win32
(some GNU/LInux distros have mingw32 as a package).
I made some notes about debugging threads this way here:
Alternatively, Eric Pouech made a gdb remote stub out of winedbg, see:
