can't find source files / line numbers with gdb

Hello everyone. I have been using Linux for about half a year (currently RH9) and came across the gdam software for x windows. i had a problem and then noticed that it was listed under the 'bugs' section of their sourceforge site. i wanted to see where the bug was (hoping that the error is really my problem) so i compiled the automake sources and tried to run gdb on the audio-server (first time i've ever tried doing so on a big program i haven't written). gdb acted a little different from normal -- instead of giving me the file.c:line number data like all my simple programs do, i get something like this ---

0xffffe002 in ?? ()
(gdb) break gdas_seekable_mp3_seek
Breakpoint 1 at 0x8064bee
(gdb) continue
[Switching to Thread 1077632288 (LWP 9014)]

Breakpoint 1, 0x08064bee in gdas_seekable_mp3_seek ()

I would like a way to get some kind of source file / line number data out of gdb rather than the hex codes. Is there any kind of 'approved method' to find this data?

Thanks in advance for your help.
