It is technically possible to move the tools although it is
not recommended.  In order to do this, you will have to
properly set at least one environment variable 
(GCC_EXEC_PREFIX).  That same environment variable is
used by ANY gcc/gnat installation on your machine. So
you can end up confusing the native compiler quite easily.

If you don't have enough disk space in /, simply make
/opt a symbolic link to another directory or make it a 
mounted filesystem.  I did that on at least one of
OAR's machines and since it used to be /usr2, I symlinked
/usr2 to /opt so nothing under /usr2 would break.
