Macports ggdb vs gdb...

Just wondering why the macports version of gdb still has the extra ‘g’ prepended to the front. Is it to avoid conflicting with existing versions of gdb on OS X? 

I don’t think gdb is a part of current XCode tools anymore…they use lldb now instead, so is there a possibility the maintainer could change the name back to ‘gdb’…?
