Subject: [Caml-list] malfunctioning -o command-line argument?
   I don't know how I haven't noticed this behavior before, but it seems
like the -o command-line argument for ocamlc/ocamlopt does not work in all
For example, if is a file then:
      ocamlc -c -o /tmp/foo.cmo
will create foo.cmo in the current directory rather then /tmp.
This is also the case for .mli files. Furthermore, if I compile an .mli
file, move the .cmi file to /tmp, and compile the .ml like this:
      ocamlc -c foo.mli
      mv foo.cmi  /tmp
      ocamlc -I /tmp -c
Then ocamlc will not be able to find foo.cmi.

Is this a bug or a feature?

For what I'm doing right now (multi-achitecture compilation support) I'd
really like this to work.
