Ada is not included because it can't be bootstrapped from gcc alone.   
It requires a working
ada compiler to build.

It is not impossible to do this (it's how the ghc port works), but  
does require a bit
of care to download a binary compiler and have the main build find  
it.  The ghc
portfile could be a guide to how this can be done.
