Is there a way to install gdb 7.4 on Ubuntu 10.04 using apt-get? There is some sort of bug with gdb 7.1 that shows up with a program I am debugging.

I downloaded and compiled gdb 7.4 from source and that fixed the problem for me. But I would like to update all of my systems to use gdb 7.4 if possible.
