Err, ...

no when i add  #DEBHELPER#, it adds the following stuff only :

# Automatically added by dh_installdocs
if [ \( "$1" = "upgrade" -o "$1" = "remove" \) -a -L /usr/doc/ocaml-doc ];
        rm -f /usr/doc/ocaml-doc
# End automatically added section

Nothing gets installed by installinfo.

Guess i will have to do it by hand.

By the way, why does this package says :

Selecting previously deselected package ocaml-doc.

What is the meaning of exec format error ? And how do i fix it ?
