Maybe not, but I think so. synth(8) requires the ada compiler which means
lang/gcc6-aux or lang/gcc5-aux and those DID require work to install on
ino64. I believe that this is now resolved, but I would seriously consider
simply installing synth from the package. It has no run or lib depends, so
installing the package is risk-free.

synth is the only package I install on my development system,though I do
consider installing chromium and libreoffice from packages now and then...
like every time I have to rebuild either. (libreoffice is awaiting for a
rebuild right now. Maybe tomorrow. I built Chromium yesterday.)
