In my case this would be gprbuild-2011-4 (on Jessie). Ok - now I got the
strategy behind this. The reason why I want to use gnat-4.9 is that
gnat-4.6 has some issues with container iteration. 
According to 


gnat-4.6 should provide full support for Ada 2012. However, things like 

for e in vector loop
  e := ....;
end loop;

does not work with gnat-4.6 on Jessie. Is this a bug or is this
functionality deliberately missing in 4.6?
