Already with gdb-6.3 (used for my last build of RHIDE several years
ago) RHIDE heavily depended on deprecated features of GDB. I do not
thing that this will improve with upcoming gdb-7.0. Most likely some
of required and deprecated features could even be removed completely.

I myself have not used RHIDE already for several years and have no plans
to use it. As the result it is extremely unlikely that I'll could do any 
of RHIDE in future.
