These days gdb also has the nifty --args argument which specifies that
the arguments given to gdb after the program filename are arguments for
the program being debugged, not gdb.  For example:

	gdb --args /bin/ls -l
	(gdb) run
	total 2384
	-rw-rw-r--  1 krh krh   1525 Jan 27 14:35 acinclude.m4
	-rw-rw-r--  1 krh krh 252975 Jun 21 18:51 aclocal.m4
