The first part of my instructions: either invoke GDB from the src
directory, or type this inside GDB:

  (gdb) source /path/to/src/.gdbinit

(It is possible that automatic loading of .gdbinit failed because
latest GDB versions refuse to load these init files by default.)

Yes.

like what we do with the menu, for some reason.

Thanks.
