That way, you can share the cross-gdb without installing a toolchain
on every machine that will be used to debug target programs.

+ help
+ Say 'y' if you want to use Python scripting inside gdb.
+ Say 'n' if you do not want to.
+ Beware that enabling Python scripting could render the gdb
+ executable non-functional if you move it to another machine.
+ Building a static gdb can help in this regard, although there
+ have been reports of problems when linking gdb to the static
+ libpython.a. This should be fixed in gdb >=7.3. YMMV.
