The change in ocaml results in a change in ABI. You should increase
the so-names so to speak. Thats the same problem as the gcc-3.2
transition or the libc6 transition. Or not?
Seems to be a common problem with ocaml so you might want to think
about something there.
PS: If you give me a list of packages I can run them throught my m68k
buildd in that order and let you sponsor the uploads.
