Subject: modifying ocaml sources

Hi all,

We are trying to modify the ocaml compiler in order to have it verify
the well foundedness of recursive module definitions, and have a
question for the long standing ocaml source hackers.

>From early experiments, it seems that the dependencies in the various
.depend files are insufficient. For example, try to modify the version
string, say "3.08.3", in stdlib/sys.cmo, and make the world. Launch
the new toplevel; nothing has changed. How do people deal with this
issue? In the cases we have, cleaning up the executables before making
the world again is enough. Is it in general?
