Subject: Godi-problem: setting C-compiler/linker
Hi,

we have discovered a linking problem with the OCaml-distribution in
Godi. We want to be able to choose different C-compilers (e.g. gcc33)
when compiling or linking. Unfortunately, Godi hacks the
OCaml-distribution to insert some additional flags for finding shared
libraries. These flags are lost when we want to set a compiler/linker
using "-cc".

We could, of course, hard code these flags into our Makefiles, but
that's not particularly portable. Another way would be to link a dummy
file with flag "-verbose" and use pattern matching on the displayed
command line to extract the correct flags (very hacky, can easily
break).

What would be a better (= simpler, more portable) solution to this problem?

Best regards,
Markus
