It looks like the enum values are known to GDB only if there's a
variable which has that enum type.  E.g., if I change the enum like
this:

  enum
    {
      CHECK_LISP_OBJECT_TYPE = gdb_CHECK_LISP_OBJECT_TYPE,
      DATA_SEG_BITS = gdb_DATA_SEG_BITS,
      GCTYPEBITS = gdb_GCTYPEBITS,
      USE_LSB_TAG = gdb_USE_LSB_TAG
    } foo;

then there's no problem with CHECK_LISP_OBJECT_TYPE.  However, the
next problem in line is with VALBITS:

  (gdb) break decode_any_window
  Breakpoint 3 at 0x11de1b8: file window.c, line 149.
  (gdb) r -Q
  Starting program: D:\gnu\bzr\emacs\trunk\src/./oo/i386/emacs.exe -Q
  [New Thread 5144.0xe24]

  Breakpoint 3, decode_any_window (window=54888269) at window.c:149
  149       if (NILP (window))
  (gdb) n
  152       CHECK_WINDOW (window);
  (gdb) p window
  $1 = 54888269
  (gdb) xtype
  No symbol "VALBITS" in current context.

This is again because no variable uses this enum:

  enum { VALBITS = BITS_PER_EMACS_INT - GCTYPEBITS };

If I declare a variable with this enum, I get past VALBITS, but then
bump into pvec_type:

  Breakpoint 3, decode_any_window (window=54888269) at window.c:149
  149       if (NILP (window))
  (gdb) n
  152       CHECK_WINDOW (window);
  (gdb) p window
  $1 = 54888269
  (gdb) xtype
  Lisp_Vectorlike
  No enum type named pvec_type.

Etc., etc.

The old code had real variables that used the enumerated types.
