Hash: SHA1

Hello all,

I am new to Ocaml, and am struggling with installing some libraries.

My goal is to understand parts of the code of Bernard Filiot’s binary
tree automata library:
 For that, I seem to need findlib.  I found it here:, but the configure script
gives me the following error:

lichtenstein:/usr/local/findlib-1.1.2pl1 # ./configure
Welcome to findlib version 1.1.2pl1

Configuration for camlp4 written to site-lib-src/camlp4/META
Detecting compiler arguments: FAILED

I have ocaml installed via SuSe’s package manager (64-bit version), I’m
on SuSe Linux 10.0

Any help much appreciated.

Cheers, H.
