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.
