       The LLVM parts of llvm-gcc are written in C++ so a C++ compiler is
       needed to build them.  The rest of gcc is written in C.
       Some linux distributions provide a version of gcc that supports all
       three languages (the Ada part often comes as an add-on package to
       the rest of gcc).  Otherwise it is possible to combine two versions
       of gcc, one that supports Ada and C (such as the
