I have not tried building GwML under Ocaml 3.01 yet. One problem with both
GwML and Efuns is that they require the source tree for OCaml to build, which
means I actually packaged them improperly (there is no way to declare a
dependency on the source of another package).
I e-mailed with Fabrice LeFessant (the upstream author) a bit to see if
it could be resolved using some of the newer features of OCaml (versus the
original version that GwML and Efuns were built against), but his lack
of time did not give us much opportunity to explore this (yet).
Hopefully we he has completed his dissertation...:-)
