Real smooth there, Slick.

It's been mentioned several times in this thread alone that Ada is only 
available for i386 and amd64.  I think you already knew that and thus 
this is a pure troll.

Use poudriere for non-x86 platforms.  armv6 packages are built with 
poudriere + QEMU, but I suspect you already knew this as well.
