I've compiled this with Ocaml 3.09.1 on x86 Linux and x86-64 Linux.

Looking at the example program, it works correctly
on x86 Linux but fails on x86-64 [0]:

    # > ./ray_nocol.proc.opt 9 1024 1 ray_nocol.proc.opt.pgm
    Fatal error: exception Unix.Unix_error(12, "lseek", "")

I've also tried the non-opt version and the nath version. All fail
in the same way.

The errno value of 12 means "Out of memory". I did a little debugging
but couldn't find anything obvious.


[0] This is the standard 3.09.1 compiler shipped with Ubuntu Feisty.
