I haven't tried arm/gba for Ada.  I think ARM works for
Ada but haven't tried it recently.  The GBA doesn't have
a lot of memory and that is bad for Ada but hello should
work if you configured RTEMS with POSIX.

I just sent you my ticker.exe as a sanity check.  Hopefully
it will make it through the email filters.

You need to try some simple C examples before moving on to Ada.
