This issue is very target specific and depends on low level GCC macros
being defined or not on many targets, so you can't expect this work out
of the box on all platforms. Also note that there is no guarantee in the
Ada RM that the test case will produce the expected output, it's more of
a convenience issue, and it happens that on some targets, the "expected
output" is produced, but no Ada programmer should count on such behavior
which is non portable, since the program is erroneous.
