Missing debug information for gcc 8.3

With the update of GCC to 8.3, it looks as if the symlinks and still point to, which were developed with GCC 7.3. Isn't the correct version (hence the symlink should point to 8.3.0)? This causes a problem with Debugger, which still looks for 7.3 files, which doesn't sound right.

The debugger neither knows nor cares about those symlinks. It lets the OS take care of loading the app, resolving dependencies as appropriate, and then walks the executable image list that ultimately wound up in the target's address space in order to determine what debug information to attempt to load. If no debug information package has been made available for 8.3 yet, then there's nothing it can do. It'd probably be more appropriate to file a ticket against the gcc port at HaikuPorts, since this sounds more like a packaging issue.
