Nios2 gdb and Linux

I've been running Nios2 on Linux with success for some time and now I am trying to use gdb with no success.  

 

I've tired the published examples but one general question persists - is the gdb stub automatically built-into 

my design? I'm running from the bash command line and using the provided scripts in my makefile. I added 

the '--debug' option to 'nios2-app-generate-makefile' with no success. So, I am wondering if this necessary to use gdb? Or does  

the nios2-app-generate-makefile default to include a gdb stub in the build and you'd have to explicitly remove debug support.

Does anyone know if a basic Nios2 C project has gdb support by default?
