This question make no sense. Of course you can debug a kernel on an
Intel system using an AMD system. There isn't anything CPU vendor
specific within a single architecture that would affect you doing this.
But I don't think that's really your question. I think you're asking if
you can debug a FreeBSD/i386 kernel using a FreeBSD/amd64 system. I.e.
The answer is "no" using stock FreeBSD bits.
A single GDB binary cannot be built multi-platform.
