Wouldn't you need to turn on LTO—link time optimisation, for what little
or not it can do, depending on whether ADA is a runtime and most of the
code overhead is the runtime's and most of that code is run, versus
whether it's just some unused stdlib functions or the like?

That's assuming LTO is a good idea yet and wasn't buggy like I heard
years ago, if that was even true. Am out of the loop.
