Subject: How do I reproduce the problem with @responsfile with ocamlopt and mingw gcc?


Hi Caml riders,

Since my last request didn't get any answers or pointers to other
information so far, I'm taking the liberty to repost the central
question with a subject more to the point.

As I already wrote:

http://caml.inria.fr/pub/distrib/ocaml-3.10/notes/README.win32 says:

   "Do *not* install the Mingw/MSYS development tools from www.mingw.org:
   these are not compatible with this Caml port (@responsefile not
   recognized on the command line)."


So there is purportedly a problem using ocamlopt with MingW/MSYS. It
might be that the problem already "went away" in the due progress of
MingW development, or maybe id didn't.

How can I reproduce the problem if it still exists with current
MingW/MSYS? Is trying to ocamlopt-compile a hello_world.ml enough?

Regards -- Markus

PS: Sorry for my impatience. It occured to me that the subject might
    have been misleading since it doesn't show that I really have a
    question to ask.
