This message came across comp.lang.ada at one point. I don't know if it
will help much - you might try emailing the author, who works for ACT.
Alternately, GNAT should be part of GCC Any Day Now, and at that point, 
gcc@gcc.gnu.org will probably be an excellent place to get assistance.

 You actually don't need to do this.  You can go up to the .s files in
the cross-environment (see the gnat-cross target) and then do the
assemblies  on the target.

 A faculty member at NYU (not part of the GNAT project) built GNAT for
Alpha/Linux using the above method back around 1994; it's not that hard
