S/390x - is that the IBM ESA/390 mainframe of
the 90s?

Really? You have one at home?

Well,

(1) there are other ways to debug than GDB;

(2) if bash is broken, see what other shells
are around (e.g., sh, dash, even zsh) - it
shouldn't be that hard to change any
bash-specifics; and

(3) is bash really required to install Emacs?
