I was able to reproduce this with make 3.80 and bash 2.0.5b.
What versions do you have?

It's not looking for termcap on your host. It's looking for
a cross-compiled term library and libtermcap is there but it's
not able to find it because for some reason LDFLAGS is not set
although CC and CFLAGS are correct.

Here's a patch for apps/tools/gdbserver/Makefile. I'm not sure that this
is the correct solution but it works:

--- Makefile    18 Sep 2002 16:29:05 -0000      1.6
