It's a bit of both with an emphasize on the former: Ada has long 
standing problems with multilibs and probably hardly anybody but Joel is 
actively supporting it.

The premiere issue with Ada however is still building the toolchain.

Independently of Ada (The Ada issues basically are the same with both 
versions), I'd recommend to use at least RTEMS-4.10 (or even CVS-HEAD) 
for new developments, because the rtems-4.9.x series is "in deep freeze".
