Bug#666257: libderiving-ocaml: Programs using libderiving fail to link (archive missing in META)

Package: libderiving-ocaml
Version: 0.1.1a-3+b1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

There are two problems with the META file in /usr/lib/ocaml/deriving/META

  - The archives aren't mentioned, so ocamlfind doesn't try bringing
    in the appropriate libraries.

  - The files depend on the num package which is not mentioned.

With this version of the META file, I am able to link the program
below.  Without the archive lines, it fails to link because of a
reference to the Show module.  Without the 'requires' line, it fails
to link because of a reference to Num.

version = "0.1.1a-3+b1"
name = "deriving"
requires = "num"
description = "deriving functions"
archive(byte) = "deriving.cma"
archive(native) = "deriving.cmxa"
type foo = { a: int } deriving (Show)
let () = Printf.printf "%s\n" (Show.show<foo> {a=42})
