Mmm, it should be a symlink to /usr/lib/ocaml/3.06/caml.
Anyway, i am planing a new upload of ocaml, but it will not be before
christmas like i had hoped. It will still be available this year though.
Or maybe i should just release a new package which fixes this, and wait
for the policy changes for later on.
The new plan is to put the includes into
/usr/include/ocaml/<version>/caml, and have /usr/include/caml symlink to
this. At least the "official" ocaml package will provide the symlink.
Neither the ocaml cvs snapshot, nor the older versions will provide this
Another idea is to provide the symlink with an alternative, not sure
Notice that this is important, as ocaml has trouble uninstalling on s390
because of that (resulting in lablgl not building because ocaml is
already installed, but not finding an ocamlc, dpkg status is pi).
Still i would surely need Jerome's trick for the symlink thingy.

Just put a symlink from /usr/lib/ocaml/3.06/caml to /usr/include/caml,
and you should be able to fix this problem and build your packages.
Mmm, i will try uploading a fixed package today yet.
