Don't use gdb 4.18 on AIX 4.3.x. You can try gdb 5.0 on AIX 4.3.x, but
your best bet would be to either try find gdb 5.x somewhere on IBM's
site or to get a recent gdb from CVS.
Certain things changed at 4.3, mainly for 64-bit support in the OS. My
guess is that if you run
it will say "Big" something in the output. gdb 4.18 can't handle the newer
64-bit format, and gdb 5.0 wasn't perfect with it either.
