This got a lot easier just yesterday. On most Linux distros you just
have to install the gnat package (sometimes called gcc-ada) matching
your GCC. Then, if you are up-to-date on coreboot master, this should

  $ make crossgcc-clean
  $ # or `mv util/crossgcc/xgcc{,.bak}` if you want to keep a backup
  $ make crossgcc-i386 BUILD_LANGUAGES=c,ada CPUS=4

The `BUILD_LANGUAGES=c,ada` shouldn't be necessary but makes it error-
out in case something is wrong with gnat.

You'll have to hook it up for the X201 then, similar to "1b3a6e4b14
mb/google/slippy: Hook up libgfxinit". And select CONFIG_MAINBOARD_
USE_LIBGFXINIT. Let me know if you have further questions / need any
