Re: Ada files now checked in

    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.  

Correct, but you can build one of those since everything is written in C.

    Also, even if it did work, a normal user couldn't do that, since they
    do not have write privileges to that directory.

True, but the way you do it is build everything but Ada, install it
where you do have privileges (aftr all, if you can't put it anywhere,
why are you building it?), then put gnat1 and gnatbind there, build a
new driver, and continue.

Yes, this is not trivial, but it also isn't that hard.
