I'm not really sure about this. IIRC the internal design of gdb is 
modeled after the STABS debug format. This means that even for DWARF, it 
internally is translated to STABS, meaning that not all contstucts 
possible in DWARF are supported. Given this I have doubts that all 
features of FPC can be implemented in gdb. (again, IIRC)
