First of all, never use ./configure.  Always build in a different

Secondly, just use powerpc-elf, not powerpc-*-elf.

So, you want somethig like
    ../gcc/configure --target=powerpc-elf

I assume you saw the '*' in configure scripts doing a switch on
target.  That is a shell pattern on the canonical name.  Don't confuse
that with the name you use for a target.

No idea on your Ada problem, but it may be related to running
configure in the source directory.
