	I have been working on porting GDB V4.14 for DJGPP (MSDOS-go32).
This is a preliminary release of my working files (i'll provide diffs
later when things completely stabilise for the dos specific files).
The files are relative to the stock gdb-4.12.tar.gz distribution.
Note they have MSDOS \r\n line seperators.
	My changes can be found at delorie.com/pub/djgpp/contrib/gdb414pa.zip
, and omnigate.clarkson.edu/pub/msdos/djgpp/pub/gdb414pa.zip.


	Note termio has not been completed, so the files in gdb/readline
do not work as advertised. For MSDOS, you'll have to use the gdb V4.13
readline library that has lots of hacks to work with go32. Or you can
yHUSE the special readline lib included in the DJGPP source distribution
of DJGPP V2.0-beta, GDB V4.12 . 
	My files also have duel debugger hooks included. I wonder if the
maintainers of gdb would consider making the gdb comment char "##" so
it doesnt conflict with duel's "#" operator?

	At this point, the changes are mostly 'clean', with dos specific
files included, a dos readme, and changes to the go32 target files. 
	Anyway with a bit of fiddling, its fairly straight forward to
make a gdb.exe with duel debugging extensions. The gdb.exe seems to function
reliably.
