Yes it's just changing a couple of lines in
I haven't tried it with gcc-5 because RSB uses gcc-6 by default, but I 
could submit a patch for it too as it won't break anything.

First the standard toolchain, then rtems, then toolchain with --with-ada

For the current RSB-config rtems is still necessary, but if that changes 
with the next library upgrade that would be nice.
