Thanks for your help. I installed the source files are you suggested:

apt-get source libgsl0-dev

I then moved this to /usr/share/
I tell gdb where to find them with:

dir /usr/share/gsl-1.8/subdir_containing_appropriate_source_files

However, it's annoying to have to tell gdb this every time. 
Can anyone tell me how I can find out the location of the sources specified by
the debug symbols? Then I could copy them to that location to save me having to 
specify them each time.
