Subject: ocamlmktop has a weird behaviour
I am trying to write a makefile entry to build an ocaml toplevel
(version 3.11.1, default Ubuntu 9.10 install).

My problem is very simple. First, the following works as expected:

$ ls lib
$ cd lib
$ ocamlc -c
$ ocamlmktop -o ../ocamltop batteries.cmo
$ ../ocamltop
        Objective Caml version 3.11.1

# open Batteries;;

The module Batteries has been loaded in the interactive loop as
intended. Now, this *doesn't* work:

$ ls lib
$ ocamlc -c lib/
$ ocamlmktop -o ocamltop -I lib batteries.cmo
$ ocamltop
        Objective Caml version 3.11.1

# open Batteries;;
Error: Unbound module Batteries

??? This looks like a super-obvious bug, so I must have overlook
something. Any idea what? Is it possible to built a sensible toplevel
with libraries *not* in the current directory? How?
