I have followed the discussion about this problem from time to time.

Are my conclusions OK : I should modify the Build-Depends of my package from 
ocaml to ocaml-best-compilers, am I wrong? Then, if the optimised compiler
exist for the platform the package is built on, it will be used (my rules
files already handles this) and the normal compiler will be used if the
optimised one does not exist.
