You can't, and ideally this shouldn't even be necessary. In the past 
years, people have implemented support in GDB for Fortran and ADA arrays 
that also have dynamic length counts. We should update our DWARF code to 
properly describe the dynamic length location too, so GDB will 
automatically do the right thing (to be enabled/disabled via a -gXXX 
command line option, so the old method can still be selected for use 
with older GDB versions).
