Could you give any hints as to how to configure GDB with 'stabs in PE'
support? The only reference I could find in the GDB documentation is:
Windows 95 and NT use the PE (/Portable Executable/) format for their
executables. PE is basically COFF with additional headers.
While BFD includes special PE support, GDB needs only the basic COFF
Is there a configure option to enable this support in the standard
BFD/GDB code? (I'm using GDB from CVS head) - or are special patches
required? How did you get/build the GDB you use?
