Seems so. This issue is supposed to be addressed in rtems-gdb patches.
So if you insist on rebuilding the toolchain, get yourself the
*.nosrc.rpms and try to get them building.

However, these also won't bring you much further, because you'll then
hit another bug in gdb-5.2, nobody has taken care about so far..

Until last week, yes - I just switched to FC3.

However, you can simply use the RH-7.3 binaries from

In case you didn't already do, I'd recommend you to install apt from 
fedora.us and then to install

It configures apt in such way that it will automatically d/l and install
the RH-7.3 rpms at rtems.com. Unfortunately there currently are no FC*
rpms available. In general, these RPMS are rebuildable under FC2,
however rtems-4.6-sparc-rtems-gdb-5.2 is an exception.
