Where can I get sources of gdb 5.2.1 or later that was
compiled as mingw edition and is in the corresponding
package?
Is it enough to take sources
("gdb+dejagnu-5.3.0.90_20030122.tar.bz2") fand compile
it with the full mingw package?

And what is needed to debug gdb? I have software wich
uses gdb and there is gdb internal error I want to try
to debug and fix.

    Hmm... It appears the developer uploaded only the
    differences file to the site
    https://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?release_id=115315.
    I didn't catch this till now. So I assume you can apply
    the diffferences file to the gdb-5.2.1 source on the
    ftp.gnu.org site. Sorry, I know this needs corrected ASAP.

    I'm wanting to get a build of insight gdb going but haven't
    had enough round tuits to debug the build. If you are
    really interested in getting the Win32 version debugged I
    could add you to the list of mingw developers and you can
    join the mingw-dvlpr mail list. I really need for someone
    to take on the maintenance of this package.

    As for debugging a debugger, you use a known working
    debugger. As for dejagnu, I've not tried that.

    I've also just noticed a gdb-5.3 release at ftp.gnu.org with
    a Dec 12th date. Perhaps you should use that to debug this.

    HTH and good luck,
    Earnie.

    Ok. I'll subscribe me to the list. But I don't think I'll be
    the one maintaining this package because the project I'm
    doing now connected with gdb is planned for some specific
    time. I'll try to fix the bugs I can and need.
    Use eugenem@aldec.katowice.pl
    Can you tell me more about how there is a build being made
    for now?

    Thanks. I'll see what I can do.
    How do you debug gdb? What tools do you use?

    What do you use to debug gdb?

    To debug gdb you would use gdb. Not the easiest thing to
    do. There may be references to this in the provided
    documentation. From the binary release you can ``start
    /mingw/info/gdb/index.html'' to read the documentation.
