            Jeff Johnston  <jjohnstn@redhat.com>

        * Makefile.in (cli-cmds.o): Update.
        * configure.in: Add check for getuid.
        * configure: Regenerated.
        * config.in: Ditto.
        * main.c (captured_main): Pass -1 to source_command when loading
        gdbinit files.
        * cli/cli-cmds.c: Include "gdb_stat.h" and <fcntl.h>.
        (source_command): Update documentation.  Check permissions if
