Unfortunately, with my ancient version of GCC, I don't even get past
CHECK_LISP_OBJECT_TYPE in xgetptr:

  .gdbinit:1197: Error in sourced command file:
  No symbol "CHECK_LISP_OBJECT_TYPE" in current context.

Looks like PUBLISH_TO_GDB is not doing the trick here.

Anyway, with tricky macros such as PUBLISH_TO_GDB, I'd think that
going back to using variables whose type is the enum would be better,
don't you think?  We could modify PUBLISH_TO_GDB to do that.
