lang/gcc-gnat44 will no longer be maintained.

While it builds on both i386 and AMD64, the AMD64 build fails on tasking, rendering it useless.

The new port lang/gnat-aux functionally replaces lang/gcc-gnat44.  Moreover, the new Ada ports such as devel/gps, www/aws, etc, require gnat-aux and will not build with any other version of gnat due to the dependency on devel/gprbuild-aux.

Additionally, lang/gcc-gnat44 is broken on current.  The last commit on Makefile is "Mark as broken on -CURRENT: needs distinfo update."

For all these reasons, I recommend that port lang/gcc-gnat44 be removed effective immediately.  I have discussed this with the maintainer and he agrees.

Delete the port.
