No, I don't think so.??lablgtk2?goes?entirely?into?/usr/lib/ocaml/lablgtk2
and /usr/lib/ocaml/stublibs, plus one file /usr/bin/lablgtk2.

I'm not sure what you mean.  The user will have to install ocaml first in 
order to build from source.  Is anything more required?

exe and remove '-w s', but I'm inclined to leave it alone.
