These all boil down to the same problem: ocaml was upgraded to
ocaml-3.07, while the packages that were available at the time depended
on ocaml-3.06-1. Since that doesn't exist anymore, they'll never become
needs-build again. Under normal circumstances we find such things
ourselves, but since we've got quite some backlog currently...

I just instructed wanna-build to pretend ocaml-3.06-1 is available; all
packages depending on ocaml-3.06-1 should at least be in needs-build

Does that help? ;-)

I can't promise anything about that, but at least they're re-scheduled
