I see I didn't know it wasn't supported yet. So when shared library
support is in place in gcc 3.x or 4.x, then one can have shared
libraries? What I was trying to say is that I hope one can eventually
have shared libraries so my Ada applications compiled with gcc does not
become 3 times bigger as they are with Gnat 3.14p or 3.15p. But it
sounded like somebody thought this was a bad idea at any time.
As for the debian package the symlinks should be removed so that one
doesn't get confused about why the so libs are missing.
Ada95 is good for you.
