Bug#563242: ITP: gprbuild-4.4 -- a multi-language extensible build tool

Package: wnpp 
version: 1.0
Severity: wishlist
Upstream Author : AdaCore (report@adacore.com)
URL             : http://libre.adacore.com/libre/
License         : GPL
Programming Lang: Ada
Description     : a multi-language extensible build tool

 A set of tools for processing GNAT project files. gprbuild runs tools
 on the specified source files; gprclean removes the corresponding
 built files; gprconfig configures both tools. It is highly
 configurable; the default configuration supports compiling Ada,
 Assembler, C, C++, and Fortran sources.
 This package contains the executables gprbuild, gprclean, gprconfig.

The package name includes "-4.4" because it is tightly tied to gnat;
gnat is currently at version 4.4. Future releases of gprbuild will
coincide with future releases of gnat.

It might make sense to have the "gnat" meta-package install gprbuild
as well (the AdaCore distributions of the GNAT toolset do this).
However, gprbuild can be used without gnat.
