setup.exe aborts at approximately the same point, while parsing
setup.ini.  When it aborts I see a windows dialog box offering to send
Microsoft more info about the problem, which I denied.

To proceed, I need a bit of help in the basics of gdb to continue
troubleshooting.

If you've build setup.exe from source using the default make target (i.e. 'make' rather than 'make strip' or 'make upx'), then the built executable is unstripped and contains symbols (so you don't need the .dbg file; which corresponds to a different build in any case...)

Something like the following should work:

gdb setup.exe
run
[reproduce crash]
bt full
