Just by bizarre synchronicity I was thinking the same thing. Or
perhaps it was just because I was editing comps.xml yesterday to add
the MinGW project.
Anyway yes - I'm going to add it right now...
This was the patch I just added (attached).
I didn't want to get into the game of adding every single package
to comps.xml, so I just added a handful of major, commonly used
packages. For now at least.
On your specific point about omake, it's not so widely used. Lots of
packages use ordinary (GNU) make + autoconf. There are also competing
build systems like OCamlMakefile, ocamlbuild, and actually a few more.
(For a minority language, we do have far too many build systems ...)
