But aren't we talking about different things.
I was talking about how gdb and the debugged program were built,
whereas you're talking about how Emacs is built.  Aren't those
two aspects somewhat orthogonal ?  Can't I run a cygwin gdb within
NTemacs ?
I think a better solution would be to make the creation and/or display
of the I/O buffer conditional on the presence of output.
Or something like that.
