Please don't override the gcc from the gcc package in any case.
Instead, please send me the appropriate files to make the normal gcc
Ada-aware.  Look at how fortran is handled in the current gcc package.

This is probably a good idea.  Gcc's handling of compiler versions is
nice for C, C++ and ObjC, since they are fully integrated, but it
breaks down horribly for other languages because of different release
