People keep saying this but I don't think it's true.  You cannot
simply drop gnat1 into /usr/lib/gcc-lib/TARGET/VERSION; the driver
won't have the specs it needs to run it.  Also, even if it did work, a
normal user couldn't do that, since they do not have write privileges
to that directory.

I think you need to provide a driver binary as well (there does seem
to be one in gnat-3.13p-i686-pc-linux-gnu-bin.tar.gz), and the
Makefiles need to understand that "gcc" may not be able to compile
Ada.  (Yes, I am willing to help with this, time permitting.)
