Summary0005696: ocamldep -native does not print bytecode deps and confuses omake
DescriptionI don't know whether this should be fixed in ocaml or omake. What I've observed is that "ocamldep -native" no longer prints bytecode deps (in contrast to 3.12). Some omake builds are now broken (this only affects the mode when OCAMLDEP_MODULES_ENABLED=false in OMakefile - but this is frequent as the mode using -modules is still "more" broken).

Apparently, omake needs the deps for a mixed native/bytecode build.

Taken literally, this is a bug in ocaml, "The flag -native causes dependencies on native compiled files (.cmx) to be generated instead of on .cmo files. (This flag makes no difference if all source files have explicit .mli interface files.)" (manual). The spec did not include that the cmo deps are entirely omitted. But, of course, the thinking about that might have changed (but in this case the manual should be updated).

Btw, the workaround is to set OCAMLDEPFLAGS=<empty> in OMakefile (defaults to -native if native code is built).

Hi, this is indeed an unwanted change in the specification. We are going to check if it is still time to fix it before the release (there are just two lines to change in, but it's a bit late...)
