Interface The Hurd directly from Ada, bypassing C library code.
(That is, for some values of "right".)
More seriously, I think these changes have to wait until the run-time
library is tidied up (separate directory, no #ifdefs in actual code,
checking which portions have to remain in C and which should be better
moved to Ada).
It's rather strange that we Ada folks are happy about Ada *not* having
a preprocessor at all, but the C sources in the GNAT run-time library
use conditional compilation so extensively that it threatens to become
a maintainance issue (maybe that's an exaggeration, but it's only a
