AFAICS, rms still has not said what the permissions of his gdbinit file
were, beyond "writable". It seems this must mean "world-writable".

I tested with Debian testing's gdb "7.3-debian". A gdbinit file writable
by me was fine, a world-writable gdbinit was rejected with

  warning: not using untrusted file ".gdbinit"

This seems entirely reasonable to me [1]. No need to build another gdb.
Just use a sensible umask when checking Emacs out from the repository.

Since I hope that everyone building Emacs from source does not use
`umask 000', I don't think any Emacs changes are needed.
