Thanks!  To my un-OCaml eyes, that looks pretty good.  I have one
There are two scripts in the base ocaml package which automatically
calculate the right Requires and Provides for a library. To use them,
just add the following to the spec file: 

%define _use_internal_dependency_generator 0
%define __find_requires /usr/lib/rpm/ocaml-find-requires.sh
%define __find_provides /usr/lib/rpm/ocaml-find-provides.sh

The version of ocaml-find-* scripts that were posted to the list only
appeared to find ocaml requires and provides.  But OCaml can link to C
code as well.  Do we want to turn off the internal_dependency_generator
or do we want to supplement it?
