The problem is that you are requesting a weird situation, and it is
confusing apt. The buildd responds to "Build-depends: ocaml, camlp4" by
running "apt-get install ocaml camlp4", which apt decides is impossible
since ocaml Conflicts: camlp4.
"apt-get build-dep" handles this situation correctly, though. But as far as
I know, the buildd's don't use that feature yet.
