Just a technical note -- ada isn't activated by default yet. So if you 
leave off the --enable-languages option and have no gnat binary on your 
system, you won't get any errors. (At least, I didn't.) You have to 
explicitly say --enable-languages=...,ada,... to get it (and then you need 
to have an ada compiler already installed).
