GHDL, Ada and FreeBSD on amd64

Hello guys,

As there is no ghdl port in FreeBSD, I'm wondering if I can build one.

The issue is that one of its dependencies, GNAT (GNU Ada compiler), is
available only for i386, not for amd64.

As it _is_ available for Linux, I was thinking about running it with
FreeBSD's Linux emulation system, but as I have no idea of how it is
implemented and as according to freenode's #ada it has to do with FreeBSD's
threading, I'm wondering if my efforts would be destined to fail.

Thanks in advance,

Konrad Scorciapino
