Ticket #17155 (new defect)
avr-gdb-6.71 broken / fails to read symbols from elf files

Although it seems to build perfectly ok, avr-gdb is not able to read debugging symbols from elf files. I tried switching to gdb-6.8 with the same effect.
I found out that if built by hand with same ./configure parameters it works just fine, but using the port somehow elfread.o doesn't get linked in. Somehow the configure scripts seem to fail. The Problem is afaik related to bfd's elf support: "checking for ELF support in BFD... no" if compiled by port, whereas ELF support is detected when build by hand.
