No, it has nothing to do with gdb. In principle it would be possible to 
build something like a fpd-server. And maybe I will do that, because it 
would remove the dependency to sign the Lazarus IDE after each rebuild. 
(In that case, fpd-server is signed, and Lazarus just connects to it)

But my guess is that you want to use it on x86 hardware. For now it only 
works with x86/x86_64.

The console version (components/fpdebug/app.fpd) is only there to ease 
debugging of the debugger. But it's function-complete, simply because 
each function is first developed in the console-version, because that's 
easier to debug)
