I would start by trying to write a debian/rules.d/binary-ada-cross.mk

I personally do not know a bit on ada, I should learn sometime, as I
have heard it is very suitable for satefy systems. The target really
does not matter as what we try, IIRC, it is already supported by
upstream, we just need gcc-source package to produce an
arm-linux-gnueabi-gnat compiler. The binaries will be part of Emdebian
repository and if Debian agrees and it has a doable amount of users,
Debian might be interested on having those. But, surely you should be
able to build a cross gnat package in from Debian sources when this
work is done.
If you were asking me for a test platform, I have one balloonboard and
a sheevaplug which we can test on.
