You arent. download a binary.

If you dont like the binary, use it to bootstrap your own ada. its no
worse than using an existing distro to bootstrap the rest of LFS.

Saying we should include ada 'because <1% of users may find it hard to
install it later in their lives' is a poor argument - we could say the
same about a LOT of packages.
