gdb should be ported to use NSS library for cryptography.
See the tracking bug for details and links on how it could be done.

I cannot find any crypto library - like openssl - to be used by GDB:

There is contained libiberty/md5.c in the sources but the function is not even present in the distributed binaries as md5 is not in use by GDB.

gdb/utils.c:gnu_debuglink_crc32() contains some CRC32 function but not aware if it follows some standard and why it would be useful to replace by NSS.  If the same CRC32 is supported by NSS at all.

rpm -q --requires gdb- | sort -u
python(abi) = 2.6
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(FileDigests) <= 4.6.0-1
rpmlib(PartialHardlinkSets) <= 4.0.4-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
rpmlib(VersionedDependencies) <= 3.0.3-1
