Short (but late :)) answer:
Use /opt/gcc.3.3/bin/gdb. Even on SUA 6.0 where gcc > 4 can be used, this is still the debugger to use. (beware: you may have to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH and such...)

I found /opt/gcc.3.3/bin/gdb working most of the time. Sometimes it doesn't, but I haven't figured out what was going wrong there (I guess it was shared libs...). I also found truss usefull sometimes.
