           Summary: GDB: "can not find executable"
           Product: kdevelop
           Version: 3.0.0
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdevelop-devel kdevelop.org
        ReportedBy: jtrmal students.zcu.cz

Version:           3.0.0 (using KDE 3.2.0, Gentoo)
Compiler:          gcc version 3.2.3 20030422 (Gentoo Linux 1.4 3.2.3-r3, propolice)
OS:          Linux (i686) release 2.4.24

When I cofigure options (Project/Project Options/Configure Options) for specific target (let's say add -Wall into CXXFLAGS for target debug) after the recompilation I'm unable to start GDB, it just produces error "GDB message: no executable file specified". I've investigated a bit. Before reconfiguration, the gdb execution command line is 
gdb /home/yenda/projekty/test_debug/debug/src/test_debug -fullname -nx -quiet

and after (not working debugging)
/bin/sh -c /home/yenda/projekty/comxviii/debug/libtool gdb /home/yenda/projekty/test_debug/debug/src/test_debug -fullname -nx -quiet

I believe, problem is in configuration file (unimportant part stripped)
Having deleted <dbgshell>libtool</dbgshell> it all works OK.
