My guess is he isn't using collect2 at all.

ISTR it has been used to collect the C++ global/static
constructors/destructors for object formats that don't support them in
separate sections (a.out, COFF).  For ELF, it's not needed all, not
even for C++.  I have no idea whether Ada has something similar to
constructors/destructors and would thus require it at all.
