Actually Adapower already does point to a better link which is

http://www.adapower.com/lab/adax.html

Which actually contains slightly modified versions of the original X
bindings (and Motif and Xforms)
setup to build with later versions of GNAT that exposed bugs in the
bindings. In addition, from
here you can follow a link to the Linux for Ada Team that has built RPMs
based on these modified bindings.

I do not have the time to update these to later versions as I am now
much more interested in the GtkAda bindings which provide a better solution
for a GUI (IMHO). I certainly
will continue to update the bindings if I find bug but at the moment I am
not planning on adding any new
functionality.
