The error message is sometimes a bit confusing, you need which is part of; gnat-gcc-4.1.0-SuSE_10_0_r4.x86_64.rpm

If you have already attempted to install the x86_64 version then check and make sure you have it; locate

You should have two versions listed one for 32-bit and one for 64-bit, if you do then something is not quite right.
