If you have a library libA-ocaml-dev which build depends on
libB-ocaml-dev _AND_ (but please not that this is the usual case)
libB-ocaml-dev needs to be linked in each time you develop using
libA-ocamld-dev then you have to rebuild libA each time you rebuilt
libB, otherwise the linking against both this library will be
