Full configure line was:

  ../src/configure \
    --enable-languages="c,ada" \
    --disable-libada \
    --host=x86_64-unknown-freebsd7.2 \
    --target=x86_64-unknown-freebsd7.2 \

...which is more or less what I build GCC with.

It does seem as if support is missing - perhaps removed by AdaCore?

The system compiler is at 4.2.1 on my AMD64 machine, so I'm guessing
that support was there and was removed?
