you need to do the following :
apt-get source ocaml
apply this patch to debian/rules
build the package normally and try a division by zero or something such,
The bug submitter proposed (116289) to do the following :
Objective Caml version 3.02
# 1.0 +. sqrt(-1.0);;
correct result would be :
- : float = nan
and bad behavior would be :
bash: : floating point exception (core dumped) ocaml
then you can quit with :
# exit 0;;
PLease keep me informed, if this will not solve the problem, i need to go
upstream and see what they will say to me (but an older problem of this kind
gave the repsonse form them to use -mieee or similar, so i hope it will work.
If that works, i will do the right fix (as you see in the patch below, it will
not work for non alpha boxes) and also maybe submitt it upstream.
Note : the bug was submitted by Falk Hueffner, i asked him to test the same as
above, but got no more response from him, most probably he was to busy for it,
or maybe my mail didn't reach him.
