ghdl does not build-depend on gnat, only on gnat-4.4, so it will not
block the transition.  You may see the lack of a build-dependency on
gnat as a policy violation but ghdl is not a library, does not produce
a -dev package, and so cannot adversely affect other packages.

Also, ghdl has 10 outstanding bugs, one of them serious (FTBFS with
recent gcc while bootstrapping its own gcc back-end), so I'll let
the maintainer deal with the package and not bother him further.
If the maintainer is MIA, the QA people will remoe ghdl from Debian.
