I thought the GCC frontents were independent from the backend?

I have already written some code in Ada, but it would be a lot more
interesting if I could use it for a "real" embedded project.

As soon as I have some spare time I'll give GNAT on ARM a try. Should
this fail, what other hardware can you recommend that is known to work
with GNAT?
