Debian does have a libunwind package.  Next is to get the Debian GCC
packages built with libunwind.  Now that HJ has sorted out the GCC 3.4
compatibility issues, this is hopefully just a matter of more time.

SuSE also has libunwind packages but I'm unsure what their plans are
w.r.t. GCC.  I assume/hope that starting with GCC 3.4.3, they'd enable
the use of libunwind.

I'm less sure where Red Hat stands.  AFAIK, their GDB is built with
libunwind-support enabled, so there must be some libunwind packages,
but they may not be the most current ones.
