stupid me, i built it, but there was no tcl/tk installed, at lest not the 8.3
-dev packages that are needed for it. Result, the place where the above caused
problem (the tk.ml file) was not reached.
I also might have messed up the armv3 and armv4 stuff. I guess medusa is one
of the armv3 boxes that where not supported previously.
I will thus close the bug, since armv3l is now supported, and i hope the above
problem is also resolved.
I can rebuild it (maybe tommorow, since it takes some time) once the
build-depends of ocaml are installed (that would be tcl/tk 8.3-dev, and not
the currently installed tcl/tk 8.0 -dev.
Does this cause problem ? if yes, i can move the build depends to use 8.0 on
arm, and 8.3 elsewhere.
Don't worry about the emacs dependency though, as i will remove it in a future
ocaml 3.01-5 package.
