Debian is special because GNAT is typically built from a different GCC
release than the rest of the distribution because two Ada transitions
in a single release cycle are a bit challenging.

To bootstrap in this configuration, the effect is that the gnatgcc
compiler supports both C and Ada (so you'd pass CC=gnatgcc to
configure), but there is no gnatg++ right now, and g++ comes from the
regular GCC.

Empirically, this setup works well.
