I think I have traced the problem down to ada/decl.c. Around line
1020 a variable declaration is created, then around 1048 the same
variable is created again (for other reasons, it seems) as a
corresponding declaration. However, the "const_flag" is not passed in
to the second variable creation. This caused the second declaration
to create the assembler output with one name, but everything else
referenced the first variable (thus the first name). You can't pass
const_flag into the second call because it won't create the assembler
output at all.
I can't follow this. Can you send a test case?
The following patch seems to fix the problem,
Of course you don't want to turn off const_flag like that, so we need
to find the real problem.
Now the compiler cross-compiles fine, but on the PPC machine I get the
gcc -c -g -W -Wall -gnatpg -gnata -I- -I. -I../../../gcc/gcc/ada

Interesting. This was also reported on IA64. However, GNAT has been
built on PowerPC before, so this is strange. Clearly something is being
miscompiled, but the question is what.
