Using gdb to debug different arhitectures

When I start gdb is displays "This GDB was configured as "i686-pc-linux-gnu" ". How do I configure it, do debug a different arhitecture, motorola 68hc11 for example?

Thanks guys!

this is a compile issue... you need to recompile GDB to support your
target architecture (or you can sometimes download prebuilt binary).
The way it works, when you configure GDB you do the following:

./configure --target=arm-linux-elf

which will create GDB that can run on the host system (same the one
you ran above command on), but debug files on your arm-linux system.
There is config.sub file in GDB build directory that lists all supported
build targets.
