Summary0001919: 2 installation issues: permissions and emacs files
DescriptionFull_Name: Oleg Trott
Version: OCaml 3.07p2
OS: Linux (Debian Woody)
Submission from: (

1. Emacs files do not get intalled automatically, and I had to do
cd emacs && make EMACSDIR=/usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp install

2. Permissions get set correctly for camlp4, but not for ocaml and emacs files,
so I had to do

chmod -R a+rX /usr/local/bin/ocaml* /usr/local/lib/ocaml \

My regular user `umask` (during ./configure && make && make world.opt) is 0077,

and su `umask` (during make EMACSDIR=/usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp install)
is 0022. The former is perhaps why the permissions get mixed up.

By the way, both of these happened during ocaml-3.06 installation as well.
