GDB in base of both FreeBSD 6 and 5 is ancient. Is there a good reason to keep such an old version? Still having 6.1.1 (which is at least 2 years old, i.e. ancient) in times of 6.4 seems odd. Not to mention it doesn't work very well (see http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=95691).
Update the base GDB to newest or provide a working port.
