Nope, not yet usable.

You can always try /usr/ports/devel/gdb6.
I'm not that familar with ports yet. I have to learn this too. So I grabed the gdb-cvs.
In the meantime I have gdb-cvs port for fbsd-ppc running. I need to fix a few issues, signal handling (if I can fix this ....?) and the like. Also, I miserably fail if I run the testsuite. Due to missing altivec support in the kernel I freeze my machine :) (G4 Aluminium Book)
The tests do not look that bad. I can even debug my application, so I already satisfied my primary motivation.
I come up with a few more questions later.
