Well, it's not easy to understand the recursive logs, and the sides conditions are not explicit to me..

Anyway, thanks for the explaination, now come the time to find a fix..

Should we change deps for ocaml in backports.org ? To me, it seems that:

>Depends: ocaml-base (= 3.10.1-1~bpo40+1), ocaml-base-3.10.1, ocaml-nox-3.10.1

Could be replaced by:

>Depends: ocaml-base (= 3.10.1-1~bpo40+1), ocaml-nox (= 3.10.1-1~bpo40+1)

It seems reasonable since these two packages are built along with ocaml..

But so, why isn't it already the default ? Begin new to ocaml packaging, there can be something I didn't get so far.. Are there a lot of packages that build-dep or depends on ocaml-base-3.10.1 or ocaml-nox-3.10.1 ??
