Building UPS using gdb core (i.e., for HP-UX)

Hi, UPS folks,

I have a need to build UPS for an OS that it has not currently been ported
to (HP-UX 10.20), and the building of ups using a gdb core as mentioned
on the web page (see below)  caught my eye.  However, the part about the
gdb back-end being broken also caught my eye.  I'd like to try to fix it,
but thought I'd poll the mailing list to see if anyone else has worked on
this problem (successfully or not).  I've gotten some useful email from
Rod Armstrong on the topic, but if anyone else has done any work, please
respond to the list.  That way, perhaps we can minimize duplication of effort.
