It has some problems in general with preinstalled versions of the GNU
libraries it packages (intl,readline), if your distribution deviates from what Linux/x86
packages. (or is explicitely fixed in configure).

I routinely disable intenationalisation (-disable-nls) because of it.

Which then in turn is also a cause for problems. Nothing an experienced Unix
person can't handle, but not userfriendly either. IMHO the gdb tree should
not build those libraries shared, or reject versions outside the tree to
avoid this)
