Cameleon package build-depends on it, a long time ago. I think it is no
more needed (since ocaml-compiler-libs should do almost what is
needed... but i am working on getting a more up-to-date list of library

BTW, i am wondering why the ocaml-compiler-libs tree structure was flat 
(one dir or something like that). Since all the files are coming from
different dir, it should be better to imitate the tree structure of the
ocaml-source. This will have some nice side effect, like being able to
make some package compile against ocaml-compiler-libs, just as if it was
a fresh ocaml build source...
