Ooops, never mind.  I now see that Cygwin was still shipping two different versions of GCC back then, and its gcc4 is 4.3.2.

Still, I think I’m still correct about the core diagnosis for the std::exit() thing the GCC Ada configure script is complaining about, except that it’s a too-new C++ Standard Library causing the problem, rather than a too-new C++ compiler.

Or, I could still be right, since you claim to have downloaded “gcc-ada” rather than “gcc4-ada”.  If that’s literally what you’ve done, you should be building with GCC 3, not GCC 4.
