(It's GDB, not GCC.)  Not sure why would you expect that, but here are
the numbers:

There are 2500 commands in "emacs -Q" and 2600 variables.  The Emacs
user manual weighs in at 49000 lines, and describes more than just
"emacs -Q", but does not describe all of the commands and variables.

There are about 1100 commands and options in GDB.  The GDB manual is
also about 49000 lines, but only 30000 of these describe interactive
commands and options (the rest is about GDB/MI, the remote protocol,
and other non-interactive issues).

So the ratio sounds very similar to me.
