Hm, you're right. I thought it was the latest beta release, but that's
2.48. Anyway, no need to worry about it here.

Build gets farther now, but fails later on complaining about caml__frame:

This isn't actually a problem now, I was only using orpie as a test. Orpie
hasn't been updated in several years, and the source site has gone dark. So
I may never actually need to build it again. If I do, then I'll have to
Thanks for maintaining all the ocaml packages. I see BTW that you added
ocaml-lablgtk2. Some time I'll get back to trying to package Unison with
the GTK2 GUI.
