No, don't do that. That's a real PITA, because the script gets rewritten every time you fix something. Do this instead:

../../../../libtool --mode=execute gdb test-backend-dbi

You could save some thinking and typing by 
export LT=`pwd`/libtool
from your top build directory and then you can do
$LT --mode=execute gdb test-backend-dbi
after cd-ing to the test directory.
