Exact, it has to do with the fact that gentoo is packaging PolyORB  
2.1, and the svn has 2.5 ..

an easy workaround is to add a patch to the gentoo package to remove  
the "warning are errors" flags

I need this info, this has been discussed in the past here, and  
someone proposed a patch
But note 2.1 is completely outdated, so please use a more recent  
release from libre.adacore.com

No, I'm an associate professor at TELECOM ParisTech, an engineering  
school in Paris.
Part of my PhD work was on PolyORB, and I'm still involved in the  

I have some strong relationships with AdaCore, but I'm not paid by them.

which is safer given your situation

They do, you'll note activities from AdaCore on the GCC mailing list
