  apport-retrace should install and use gdb for target release

Status in Apport:
  Fix Released
Status in apport package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  apport-retrace will use the version of gdb installed on the system
  performing the retrace. This can cause issues retracing crash reports
  from releases that have a newer toolchain revision than the system
  performing the retrace. Subsequently, it would be better if apport-
  retrace were to install gdb into the sandbox being used for retracing
  and used that version of gdb for analyzing the core dump.
