Thank you, that seems to be a better way (I just overwrote the gcc-tarball of rsb with my own).
However, I meant to suggest that we such a patch upstream in general. The current situation is that you can build a toolchain with Ada-support using the rsb, it will compile, but the programs it creates will fail at least for arm, but I think the error is architecture agnostic. So you need to find out why it fails, apply a patch like yours locally and rebuild which makes the process quite painful.
I don't know if the policy says, it has to be a stable gcc-release, but the gcc-4.9 branch only accepts regression and docu fixes.

@Joel+Chris: What do you think?

I am aware that Ada is the ugly little stepchild no one really wants to play with, but would still appreciate an easy way to build a working toolchain. ;-)
