Subject: Re: [Caml-list] ocamlbuild + ocamldoc + external library problems
Thank you. That does it. However, it seems not analogous to code
compilation, for which what I did was add
      ocaml_lib ~extern:true ~dir:"~/mylibs" "mylib2";

to myocamlbuild.ml and then use the _tags file to specify which files
require mylib2. I wonder why the call to ocamldoc cannot use the same
dependency information generated to compile an interface file. The same
libraries are needed to compile an interface file to a cmi file or to
documentation.
