Correcting the spelling in the title: Ada is a name of the person the
language is dedicated to: Adaafter Augusta Ada, Countess of Lovelace.
The "World's First Computer Programmer" according to wikpedia.

Good, then I'll file one/two bug reports on enabling Ada and GNU locale
in debian/rules.defs. (Test built too, it works). BTW: From the
changelog it was enabled already in 2008 by a bug report from you:
  * Use GNU locales on hurd-i386 (Samuel Thibault). Closes: #485395
Looks like it has been disabled since then. Is the GNU locale stuff only
for the C++ test suite??

BTW: Regarding the segfault I'm kind of stuck. I'm almost finished
updating the s-osinte-gnu.ads file. However, changing that file does not
make any change on where the segfault happens. It must come from
somewhere else, like long int is 64 bits instead of 32 bits, etc. The
segfault for music123 happens at:
Breakpoint 3 at 0x1054c0d: file s-taprop.adb, line 1343.
1343          Specific.Initialize (Environment_Task);
(gdb) s

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x01047a00 in
    () from /usr/lib/i386-gnu/libgnarl-4.6.so.1

And at somewhat different places for statically built tasking binaries,
but nothing is affected by the s-osinte-gnu.ads file. Probably changes
in that file will come into play when the first problem is solved.
