Since google moved to clang, you'd need to check to see if they do what
apple does which prohibits gpl components being used.
It's not been done for a while afaik, I've not compiled the compiler for
a long time and I'm rusty on the details. You basically need an arm
(--target=<your target triple> you should get this from the equivalent
c/c++ compiler in the ndk for the version you are targetting) cross
You then need either a Java startup activity which calls into Ada code
or an Ada NativeActivity which binds the C version in the ndk, that will
call AdaInit and AdaFinal (think that's the right name).
If you need to call into any lib on Android which requires a binding,
you need to generate that, so either a C binding or a JNI binding. I
have a JNI package on my github which you can use as a start, a tool to
get generate the bindings to Java would be required as JNI is really
