A few tests in gdb testsuite fail because the header <sys/sdt.h> is not
found. This header is part of the "systemtap" package, which is not
referenced in the book. I suggest to add it as optional.
Note: from the NEWS file:
*** Changes in GDB 7.5
* GDB now has support for SDT (Static Defined Tracing) probes. Currently,
the only implemented backend is for SystemTap probes (<sys/sdt.h>). You
can set a breakpoint using the new "-probe, "-pstap" or "-probe-stap"
options and inspect the probe arguments using the new $_probe_arg family
of convenience variables. You can obtain more information about
I do not know when the tests where included.
