Nope, i do it like gcc does.
I have prepared a ocaml-3.06 source package which builds real
ocaml-base-3.06-1, ocaml-3.06-1, ocaml-native-compiles-3.06-1 and
Once that has been accepted in the archive, and built for every arch
(which includes sparc), i will upload a dummy ocaml packages which
depends on ocaml-3.06-1 and possibly on ocaml-nativecompiles-3.06-1.
This would get us the benefit of what we were previously doing, without
the problems associated with virtual packages.
We were going to rever to the build-depends on >= versions, for
libraries, where this same approach would maybe be too heavy, altough
the C libraries do it also with the new policy of including the so name
in the package name.
