|Summary||0005577: Windows: 'make install' fails when 'make opt' has not been run|
|Description||OCaml Makefile.nt fails upon 'make install' if the native compiler has not been built.|
Under Unix, the Makefile tests for the presence of ocamlopt and calls the installopt target only if it exists. Is there a reason not to do the same under Windows?
|Tags||No tags attached.|
A simple reason: under Windows, ocamlopt is always built; under Unix, it's not always built because it's not supported on every platform that ocamlrun/ocamlc run on.
> under Windows, ocamlopt is always built
ocamlopt can always be built, but there could be cases where the user wants to build and install only the bytecode tools. I propose one of the following actions (by increasing order of preference):
- Adapt Makefile.nt so as to force building the the native code version with the bytecode one (i.e. merge 'make opt' -- and also 'make opt.opt'? -- and 'make world').
- Adapt README.win32 to indicate clearly that 'make opt' has to be executed before 'make install'. Or at least document the 'make installbyt' target.
- Adapt Makefile.nt to do the same as under Unix, so as to allow more flexibility.
