Please don't do this -- I'll ask Core for a backout. I know how bad the
trys at this were before. gdb6 can be tested just fine in ports. When
you think you're ready to import gdb6, do it. If things break, people
can fall back to the gdb52 port. If the gdb52 port doesn't do all that
src/contrib/gdb does, they can find the missing bits in CVS and add
patches to the port.

Modify the port or make a new port for testing.
