I use Linux exclusively and maintain the AVR port for GDB. GDB has had avr
support since 5.2.1. You need an avr remote backend to use it though such
as simulavr or avarice (as Harald already noted).

Have a look at http://www.openavr.org more open source avr info.

You might also want to subscribe to the avr-gcc mailing list which is
better for non-ethernut related questions.
