Hi,

I like the idea of code visualization and would like to try
pfff_visual. Alas, I'm having trouble building it. The first thing I
noticed is that the repository bundles versions of all its
dependencies, apparently. I have most of these installed already
through GODI, and I didn't look at the makefiles, but does the code
try to use the system versions of the libraries, if present? Right now
the error I'm seeing seems to be related to ocaml-bdb, though I have a
version installed (and working) through GODI:

make[2]: Entering directory `/home/andrei/tmp/pfff/external/ocamlbdb'
ocamlc -c bdb.ml
File "bdb.ml", line 255, characters 19-30:
Error: Unbound constructor DB_NOTFOUND
make[2]: *** [bdb.cmo] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/andrei/tmp/pfff/external/ocamlbdb'
make[1]: *** [rec] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/andrei/tmp/pfff'
make: *** [all] Error 2

So maybe this would work if the build could use the version I already
have installed.
