I'm guessing that's from the msys2 distribution?

Ah. used to create ada_mode_wisi_parse.gpr from by running gnatprep. But that changed, and I
did not update the elpa package properly. Apparently I only tested the
Alire build. Sigh.

ada_mode_wisi_parse.gpr attached.

Oops; that should be deleted.

Any reason you are not using Alire?

I have limited bandwidth for testing this stuff (as evidenced by the
test failure above), so I'm very inclined to only support Alire going
forward. Please speak up if this will not work for you.
