Thanks for the information Laurent.   The fact that GNAT was still
holding on to gcc 2.8.1 was painful as RTEMS moved on to the newer
gcc versions.  Hopefully this will get us started down the right path

AFAIK, this should allow us to treat Ada as just another optional
language from a tool distribution viewpoint.
