Thanks for the reply.  Ideally one should be able to specify
that info in the _tags file and/or with other special files.
And I reckon that Ocamlbuild probably already supports that.

By the way, I have managed to get Ocamlbuild to invoke Ocamldoc
for the source code files only (no intro or tutorials) by
creating a lambdoc.odocl file whose contents are the same as
lambdoc.mlpack's.  However, the compilation fails with a
mysterious "analyse_module: parsetree and typedtree don't match"

+ ocamlfind ocamldoc -dump lambdoc/document_ast.odoc -package extlib -package ocsigen.xhtml -package pcre -package sexplib -package threads -package unix -package xml-light -I lambdoc -I lambdoc/readers -I lambdoc/writers -I lambdoc/readers/lambtex_reader_impl lambdoc/
analyse_module: parsetree and typedtree don't match.

Command exited with code 1.

Any ideas?
