Subject: [Caml-list] question: "autoconfiguration" of Ocaml code (checking for libraries)
Dear All

(while working on Poesia - see for more)

Does anyone have some tricks or code (usable in a GPL-ed opensource
project) to facilitate configuration (more precisely checking of
installed tools & libraries) of Ocaml code.

I need something which checks that

Ocaml is installed, with version >= 3.06

ocamlfind is installed (both for bytecode & native)

[actually my wish would be that ocamlfind is part of ocaml, like
camlp4 is]

xstr is installed (both bytecode & native)

netstring is installed (both bytecode & native)

ocamlnet is installed, at least version >= 0.92


(Unfortunately, I cannot do distribution specific stuff; I want a
script usable on Linux Redhat, Mandrake, Debian, ....)
