Well, the compiler needs to be upgraded to the latest version. Linux gets a compiler out of the box, but we have to bend one to shape. Most things stay the same, but there are always subtle differences. I'd be happy to help do this (as I'm currently unemployed), but I'm also going through a divorce. You can contact me more directly at j.m.cooper at borgsdemons.com.

It looks like a noticeable share of the ports listed have one thing in common -- they depend on Ada.
Various gnat-ports would not even build on anything but i386...
Is Ada-support really in such a bad shape by the GNU-project, or is it just a FreeBSD problem?
