What version discrepancy? i.e. between the version of what and the
version of what?
Note that gnat-X.Y contains its own copy of the C compiler
(/usr/bin/gnatgcc) so there is no situation where the C and Ada
compilers have different versions.

I'll be able to answer when I undertsand what you mean by "the version
difference in Debian" (i.e. between what and what?)
