I couldn't build a working Ada compiler since 3.4.6 until around Dec 2006. At that time I finally succeeded with a prerelease of 4.2. As far as my testing goes Ada requires sjlj exceptions. I couldn't build it with DWARF2 exceptions, although I heard roumors that it should work. According to your pick list that would exclude (3), or do I misunderstand something?
I don't care too much about (4) so my vote goes to (2)
