Subject: [Caml-list] ocamldep 3.07 now saves system dependencies?
I've noticed an apparent difference between ocamldep 3.06 and
3.07. The newer version now generates dependencies for certain (but
not all) system libraries.

For example dependencies like this:

main.cmx: browser.cmx database.cmx /usr/lib/ocaml/3.07/lablgtk2/gBin.cmx \
    /usr/lib/ocaml/3.07/lablgtk2/gButton.cmx \
    /usr/lib/ocaml/3.07/lablgtk2/gMain.cmx \
    /usr/lib/ocaml/3.07/lablgtk2/gMenu.cmx \
    /usr/lib/ocaml/3.07/lablgtk2/gMisc.cmx \
    /usr/lib/ocaml/3.07/lablgtk2/gPack.cmx \
    /usr/lib/ocaml/3.07/lablgtk2/gText.cmx \
    /usr/lib/ocaml/3.07/lablgtk2/gToolbox.cmx \
    /usr/lib/ocaml/3.07/lablgtk2/gWindow.cmx \
    /usr/lib/ocaml/3.07/lablgtk2/gdkKeysyms.cmx globals.cmx \

when I run this:

ocamldep -I +lablgtk2 -I ../lablgtk2-mozembed -I +apache -I +postgres -I +pcre > .depend

This is unfortunate because my Makefile then goes off and tries to
build system libraries, and fails.

Has this behaviour changed?
