No, clang 3.4 just defaults to DWARF4 format, which kgdb does not grok.
Please put the following in your custom kernel configuration, similar to

makeoptions     DEBUG=-gdwarf-2         # Build kernel with gdb(1) debug symbols

Now on a side note, it would be very nice if our kernel debugging
extensions were ported to the ports version of gdb, which is
non-ancient... :-)
