OK, I grabbed gdb 184.108.40.206 and tried to run
configure script. Got similar

HOST (instead of target) i386-pc-mingw32 or
So what am I missing?
checking for tgetent in -lncurses... no
checking for tgetent in -lHcurses... no
checking for tgetent in -ltermlib... no
checking for tgetent in -ltermcap... (cached) yes
checking for X... no
configure: error: *** Gdb does not support host
Configure in /gdb/gdb failed, exiting.
