I'm glad you found a working solution, but that one is really hacky
and may quickyl break in the future.

If there's really no simple solution, and we really have to patch
something, then we should better patch the source (configure.ac)
instead of a generated file (configure).

That patch may then even be provided to upstream (the gdb project)
if it is a general improvement and not too MXE specific.
