Not that I know of,  check the Skyeye project,  they have been far more
pro-active in this space.

I guess you could say it isn't (though Skyeye is).  But then it hasn't
really needed maintaining as it works fine in it's current state :-)

The GDB/ARMultaor combination doesn't care why compiler/kernel you are
running in it,  just as long as its and elf kernel it should run it.

The ones I know of are:

	Skyeye (much enhanced version of above)

but since ARM is so popular,  I am sure there is a non-GDB based
emulator as well :-)  You could look at the gameboy emulators and
perhaps if there are any new palm emulators (I think they are arm based
