I'm not sure you looked in the right place.  Look in the gdb/gdbserver
directory (it might be missing from the DJGPP source distribution).

As far as I see, gdbserver supports both serial and TCP/IP, although
it's possible that the latter is not finished.  Even if so, it
shouldn't be hard to finish it, since the underlying protocol hardly
matters too much.  At least as far as DJGPP support is concerned, the
physical protocol is NOT the aspect that presents the major challenge.

A lot has changed.  Please look in the latest version on GNU FTP
sites.
