It's fairly trivial to add a "multiarch" variant which builds gdb for all supported architectures, thereby allowing a single gdb to work for both native and cross debugging. This is also a way out of the binutils conflict mess.

One slight disadvantage with this approach, at least for ARM, is that it supports multiple variants of ARM executable which it doesn't know how to distinguish among, so you need to specify the architecture explicitly.
