I must have miss something, there is no need to get the source of OCaml
from debian. You can just install the binary packages provided in debian
(and all the other libraries you can find in debian). 

What the use of building ocaml from the debian ocaml package ?

AFAIK, you won't get any speedup from doing this. I am really curious
why you should use "sudo apt-get --build source ocaml"! I don't see any
