[Ada] Spurious error -- "allocation from empty storage pool"

This patch fixes a bug in which if "pragma Default_Storage_Pool (null);"
is given, then a build-in-place function will get an incorrect error
message "allocation from empty storage pool" even though there is no
such allocation in the source program.

Tested on x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, committed on trunk
