If you just want an Idl-To-Ada translator (i.e. no libraries, no
run-time, free),
you may wish to take a look at the Mitre effort
(http://www.mitre.org/technology/idl2ada/IDL-TRAN.HTM).

We (Paranor) are very happy with the OIS implementation of CORBA (i.e.
Ada is already on this track...). (And note that a CORBA implementation
is much more than just an IDL to Ada translator.)
