Hello Jim,

Thanks for the pointer. I would prefer to roll my own but I don't have the
know how. I should have phrased my question more carefully, I am asking if
there is anyone on the list who knows how to build gcc-Ada and if so if they
would be willing to help / guide me through the process. I have Solaris 10
running on 2 architectures and I'd like to build Ada on both of them. If I
am successfull I will try to host the packages somewhere.

There are a few sites like opencsw and I have heard good stuff about
them. The problem is most of them are creating package management systems 
and you have to use them to get the package. To get gcc4ada from opencsw I
would have to get prereqs that perhaps aren't and also install in their
selected paths as far as I know. I would like to be able to build generic
packages that can install in user chosen locations and not have to use a
package manager with someone else's ideas of prereqs and what should or
shouldn't be in a package. Solaris is especially delicate in this because it
has more path chaos than most Linux distros. 

I need a lot of help but I am willing to work at it and share the results.
Thanks to anyone who can help. Please follow up to the ng.
