Maybe, then I guess a ppc machine would also be enough. Do you happen  
to know how to trick caml's ./configure ?

Note that I still think caml should, in the end, generate universal  
binaries directly, even though I have no real idea about what it  
means with respect to cmxa and friends and how much ocaml compiler  
surgery you'd need. Maybe it is not worth the effort.
