Well, the cdk is just a bunch of ocaml stuff put together with some patches
applied for the confort of those that have to depend on systems without proper
packaging support.

But i suppose it would be possible to identify more exactly what kind of stuff
is needed to compile efuns, i think to remember one of the things that was
needed was the exportation of one of the files from the ocaml source.

I am ready to provide it in the ocaml package, or even in an ocaml_for_efuns
package or something such, but i need to know what file exactly is needed.

Sure, and a debian package would be a big step in the right direction ...

As many packages ...

Mmm, a binary distribution is the same as not having anything, at least were
debian is concerned, but then, isn't fabrice one of the guys behind the cdk ?
I remember being fully ignored by those guys when i mailed them the first time
they spoke of the cdk. I guess they thiunk there is notyhing in common between
the debian packaging effort and the cdk effort, which have a different goal
