Yes, I see this now. Changing a .ads file does not trigger a recompile,
but changing the corresponding .adb file, the recompile encounters the
changes made also in the .ads file (similiar to a header file in C)

Well, the files I'm working with are mainly OS-dependent .ads (and .c)
files and there there is not much content in the corresponding .adb
file, The interface description lies in the .ads file mainly in
connection with pragmas like:
function errno return int;
pragma Import (C, errno, "__get_errno");
