When running test-case gdb.ada/ptype_tagged_param.exp, I get:
PASS: gdb.ada/ptype_tagged_param.exp: compilation foo.adb

However, when I then de-install gnatmake and run again, I get the same result.
This is due to a stale exec. After removing the stale exec, I get:
UNSUPPORTED: gdb.ada/ptype_tagged_param.exp: compilation foo.adb

Fix this removing the stale exec in gdb_compile_ada before compilation.

Tested on x86_64-linux.

OK for trunk?

This is ok.  Thank you.

I would assume there are other weird bugs like this in the test suite.
One way to ensure a clean run is to remove the outputs and cache
