Some ocamlx dependencies, notably ocamlx(Dynlink) are not very stable
between rebuilds of OCaml even of the same version. I'm unclear why
this is exactly, but I am currently rebuilding many ocaml packages
broken by the Fedora mass rebuild for this exact reason.
I think therefore we should modify the /usr/lib/rpm/ocamldeps.sh to
ignore these troublesome dependencies.
A simple thing to do for now would be (untested):
$ diff -ur ocamldeps.sh ocamldeps.sh.new
--- ocamldeps.sh 2021-07-27 21:54:47.673109249 +0100
+++ ocamldeps.sh.new 2021-07-27 22:00:34.917707988 +0100
@@ -198,7 +198,7 @@
while test "$#" -gt 0
which should have the effect of ignoring ocamlx(Dynlink) across all
modules. Obviously this would need a rebuild of all packages, so
something to consider when OCaml 4.13 comes out.
Thoughts on this?
