Summary of OcamlConf:

OcamlConf is a build helper for ocaml programs.  It takes a '' and
creates a 'configure' script.  This script prompts for compile time toggles and
variable settings, ensures libraries exist, etc, and outputs an
automatically generated makefile.

Changes in this version:

* Large improvements in mixed C/Ocaml libraries

* Removed dependency on dynamically loaded code. Now instead of using the
  toplevel it uses the compiler. This, among other fixes, should make
  ocamlconf work on Cygwin.

* Removed "rootdir" from the standard configuration parameters; "prefix"
  should be used at configure time, or use DESTDIR at "make install" time.

* Changed Makefile to support "make DESTDIR=... install" style used by
  autoconf, Gentoo's ebuild.

* Fixed Makefile so environment variable OCAMLFIND_DESTDIR is obeyed

* Added "cleaned" parameter to MakeMake.output for wiping up emacs backups,
  etc (arbitrary glob).

* Added "reinstall" target that is basically "uninstall, install." (very
  convenient when developing a findlib package)
