gdb for HPUX 11.23


I'm trying to debug my gcc compiled code on my HPUX 11.23 (Itanium).
I searched the machine to find something that looks like a compiler, and what I found was :
adb (a bit unfriendly for debugging)
kwdb (I understand this is a kernel debugger)

When I run either gdb32, gdb64 or gdbpa and write
exec <MyProgramName>

I get in all cases the following message:
IPF gdb  could not be found. Try adding the directory in
which IPF gdb lives to your path enviornment variable.
Switch to IPF mode failed

As far as I know my code is 32 bit, but I tried the 64 just in case - to no avail.

I thought maybe I'm missing some part of the gdb installation, and tried installing from the gnu site, both gdb5.3 and gdb6.7, but when I run the 'configure' on both they say they do not support my configuration of HPUX 11.23.

What debugger can I use here? Why won't the gdb32 debug my code? What is IPF gdb and where can I get it?

Any help would be much appreciated!

adb - general-purpose debugger SYNOPSIS
adb [-kw] [-I dir] [-P prompt] [-V mode] [ object [ core]] DESCRIPTION
The adb utility is an interactive, general-purpose debugger. It can be used to examine files and provides a controlled environment for the execution of programs. The adb utility is now implemented as a link to the mdb(1) utility in Solaris 9. mdb(1) is a low-level debugging utility that can be used to examine user processes as well as the live operating system or operating system crash dumps. The new mdb(1) utility provides complete backwards compatibility with the existing syntax and features of adb, including support for processing adb macro files. The Solaris Modular Debugger Guide and mdb(1) man page describes the features of mdb, including its adb compatibility mode. This mode will be activated by default when the adb link is executed.
