Ada option in compile ncurses

  I wonder how to understand the difference of compiling ncurses on ada 

  In "Constructing a temporary system", in building ncurses, the config 
option is like this,

./configure --prefix=/tools --with-shared --without-debug --without-ada 
  Then when we come to build the actual ncurses for LFS, the config option 
is like this,

./configure --prefix=/usr --with-shared --without-debug

   You can see that there is no "--without-ada" option any more.

   My question is does Ada get compiled in the 2nd build?

   It should not be as in the note of the 1st build it says there will be no 
Ada after we go to chroot environment, then why not this "--without-ada" 
option is missing then?
