The architecture-independent files (those marked "Architecture: all" in
debian/control) are built by the uploader, as are the
architecture-dependent files for his architecture.  The packages for the
other architectures are built by the buildd's.  So as long as we only
package the Ada95 documentation, there is no problem, as that would be
Architecture: all.  The documentation should be split out from
libncurses5-dev anyway to save space in the archive, see #233400.

What I would not like to do is to build with "--with-ada" on some
architectures and "--without-ada" on others, possibly carrying around a
moving list of architectures that have an ada-compiler.
