No, the "redhat" in your host string is put in there to easily identify
it as a Red Hat release. The gdb executable may have been tweaked a
little for release to support some new kernel feature, but I only recall
that being done a while ago to support separate debug files.

That's odd... That is the standard place for those things. Where does
configure think they normally exist? Do you have another set of X libs
installed or something?
