Ok, thanks for looking into this.

Perhaps someone can help me with the gdb problem I am facing. Whenever I
try to debug a program on the target platform (ARM EABI aapcs-linux),
the debugger gets a SIGCHLD signal and stops:

[root at proto2 /]# gdb hello
GNU gdb 6.8

This GDB was configured as "arm-linux-uclibcgnueabi"...
(gdb) r
Starting program: /hello 
Hello world

[1]+  Stopped(SIGCHLD)        gdb hello

Is there anything special I need to do to run gdb on the ARM platform?
