I believe you're supposed to be able to build it with a cross-compiler, so gnat-4.4 on x86 or x86_64 built to target alpha may be a way to get a native compiler built.  I've seen some web pages on building Debian packages in cross-compilation environments, which may help.  But I haven't actually worked with GCC cross-compilers or GNAT in years....
