No, not safe, because each -dev package also contains a lib$PACKAGE.a
binary.  libgtkadagl.a must be binary-compatible with libgtkada.a, which
means their compiler options must be compatible (and ideally,
identical).  The Debian upload number may change due to changing the
compiler options in an incompatible way.
