I'm pretty sure the answer to that question is no.

As far as I know.

In case you don't know: this would allow for debugging programs on
GNU/Hurd systems using a cross debugger running on another system (e.g. a
non GNU/Hurd one).  This is of advantage if you're cross compiling and
then don't have to copy the source files to the target system for using
gdb locally on there.
But it'd be difficult to have access to all the advanced features a
native GNU/Hurd GDB offers.

It shouldn't be hard to add anything necessary to the remote protocol
and if anyone was interested in working on it I'd be glad to offer
I'm looking at this just for "fun". Should we add our own hurd-i386-foo files or gnu-i386-foo, or try to shoehorn our stuff into using something like linux-i386-low?
