Subject: [Caml-list] who are the developpers ?
Hello ,
I'm a slackware user and I try to build a package for Slackware .
I saw the Makefile has not an easy structure for that .
- I can build with the prefix=/usr
- If i install with prefix=/package/location/usr , I saw that 
/etc/ is appended with /package/location/usr/lib/ocaml , that 
is quite "emmerding", because we want it to be appended with 
/usr/lib/ocaml ...

So , the needed thing is to create a DESTDIR Makefile variable ( at 
least ) and replace all the $BINDIR , $LIBDIR , $MANDIR , ... in the 
subdirectories Makefile install targets  by $DESTDIR/bin 
$DESTDIR/caml/lib ...

The most hard part is to know how much Makefile i have to edit , and to 
edit them well .

That would not only help building Slackware package , i think that would 
help to ease any other distribution packaging .

So :
-who is going to do the job with me ?
-If we finish the job, who have we got to submit it to ?

Thanks for all.
