GDB pretty printers (written in Python) need to be in the in the same 
tree as GDB. They are distributed among packages, so if you want them, 
you need to install GDB and coredump-related packages (containing the 
pretty printers, in version which matches the coredump) to some 
directory, chroot there, and then run the GDB. Then it outputs 
prettified backtrace.

I haven't spent too much time thinking about debuginfofs, so I do not 
know what would be possible if we'd work on it.
