Subject: [Caml-list] Problem using pcre on Debian
There is no Debian package for pcre so I compiled one in
/usr/local/src and installed it to /usr/local/lib/ocaml/pcre.

The compilation went without a problem after I removed the comment to
use STATIC=1 in the Makefile.  I also copied  META to the installation
directory.

Now when  try to use it in the toplevel the following happens:
-------------------------------------
$ ledit ocaml
        Objective Caml version 3.04

# #use "ocamlfind";;
Findlib has been successfully loaded. Additional directives:
  #require "package";;      to load a package
  #list;;                   to list the available packages
  #camlp4o;;                to load camlp4 (standard syntax)
  #camlp4r;;                to load camlp4 (revised syntax)
  Topfind.reset();;         to force that packages will be reloaded

- : unit = ()
# #require "pcre";;
Loading /usr/local/lib/ocaml/pcre/pcre.cma
The external function `pcre_exec_wrapper_bc' is not available
# #list;;
[I removed the other lines:]
pcre                (version: 4.18-2)

# let s = "Dit lyk nou so";;
- : string = "Dit lyk nou so" 
# let ss =Pcre.split s;;
Reference to undefined global `Pcre'
================================================

Any remedy?  I could use an older version of pcre in the same way.
