No idea why but my git sourced FreeRADIUS debugging package is 
garibaldi:/home/ac56# dpkg -L freeradius-dbg

Probably because I'm building it with[1]:
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS='nostrip debug noopt' MFLAGS='-DIE_LIBTOOL_DIE' debuild

I'm guessing if you drop the 'debug' parameter, it might start 
working....not really worth bothering I would say.

Also, we seem to be running different gdb versions...I'm guessing you 
are not running Debian 'lenny' :)
