Summary0005763: ocamlbuild does not give correct -I flags when running menhir
DescriptionThis bug is very similar to 0004572, this time it deals with the actual parser generation instead of the dependency discovery. In both cases menhir is passed an external command (either ocamldep or ocamlc) which should have the correct options. For the parser generation, the ocamlc command (passed through the --ocamlc switch) contains a '-I <directory of the mly source>' which is good in most frequent cases but is insufficient if the parser uses types that are defined in a third-party library. In my case it is a Camlp4 AST, and when I run ocamlbuild compilation it says 'Unbound module Camlp4'

There is a more thorough description of the problem and its current workaround on the caml-list: [^]
Additional InformationThe fix could be to change the function [menhir] in ocamlbuild/, in analogy with what is done in [menhir_modular], as the current workaround is based on [menhir_modular].

I can try to write a patch if it can help!

The attached fix is now included in the SVN trunk (but not in the next minor release branch, so you'll have to wait a bit for the fix to propagate downstream). I would be glad if you confirmed that the attached patch indeed solves your issue.

Thanks for the report.

I had the same bug with -package.
Is this bug will be included in 4.00.2 ?
