We are in exactly the same situation.  Rational will sell you the successor
to VADS Ada compilers and it is approximately the same price as SunAda.  I
don't know if it is the full SparcWorks package with ImpactAda, etc.  However,
it is the same compiler (or the latest version of it!).  Warning: you might
have to upgrade to Solaris 2.6.

We are currently evaluating Rational Apex, Aonix ObjectAda, and ACT GNAT for
future replacement of our SunAda compilers.
