Add a new GDB_LIBEXEC option to install gdb and kgdb to /usr/libexec.

When this option is enabled, only gdb and kgdb are installed to
/usr/libexec for use by crashinfo(8). Other bits of GDB such as
gdbserver and gdbtui are not installed. For this option to be
effective, GDB must be enabled.

Rework r317094 to re-enable GDB on all platforms but enable
GDB_LIBEXEC on platforms for which the GDB in ports is a superset of
functionality.

Note specifically that the GDB in ports is a substantial improvement in
functionality on amd64.
