Gdb and g95

No, I did not use -ggdb. However I tried it and that does not seem to work.
Here is the resolution: the -g3 option. The set up that works is the Apple build of gdb (6.5.3) and the -g3 compiler option with either gfortran or g95. Debugging then works with the apple gdb but not the macports gdb (7.1). This appears to be a very complex issue. I am thinking that machoread.c is specifically for Darwin (see the error message below). Something is broken in it, however. Apple's build seems to fix this.
I consider the matter resolved: use the -g3 option and the Apple-supplied gdb. The wizards at macports might address the macports version of gdb at some point. By the way, this sort of problem appears to affect fortran. C, C++, etc. appears to have much less problem (my experience).

Could you try using "-ggdb" instead?

As a follow up, I tried to download the source code from the developer's site and compile it myself.
I had the same problems as with my previous email.
