Summary0004783: ocamlmklib uses hardcoded path to ocamlc and ocamlopt (Windows native)
Descriptionocamlmklib tries to invoke ocamlc as C:\ocamlms\bin\ocamlc which is not where ocaml is installed.

I think it would be better to invoke simply "ocamlc" (as it already calls flexlink without a full path) relying on PATH environment variable, and if one needs specific path -- use -ocamlc option.

The same goes for ocamlopt.

For the mingw port, the path is C:\ocamlmgw\bin\ocamlc — the same goes for ocamlopt.
The fact that this is hardcoded is not so much a problem than the fact that it is NOT the default path of the OCaml installer! Of course one can use the -ocamlc (resp. -ocamlopt) options but this should not be necessary (and libraries makefiles do not usually do that).

Tentative fix in 3.11 branch (do not use absolute paths when running under Win32). Will go in 3.11.2.
