Here is what I have so far, after lengthy consultation of the gdb manual.  Bear with's basically a copy & paste of gdb session output:

(gdb) run

setpgrp failed in child: No such process
warning: Unable to find dynamic linker breakpoint function.
GDB will be unable to debug shared library initializers
and track explicitly loaded dynamic code.

Program received signal SIGILL, Illegal instruction.
