Maybe not, it would have to be tried.  I was discussing it later with the GDB
team and the Python Pretty Printers should be both cross-arch compatible and
they should work even for other versions - such as using GDB `set sysroot'.

from libstdc++-4.5.1-4.fc14.x86_64 already contains the version string
`6.0.14' so there can be multiple such `host OS' packages installed for
supporting various `target OS' versions.
