Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.8.0nb1, Package name: ocaml-findlib-1.8.0nb1, Maintainer: jaapb

The "findlib" software provides a scheme to manage reusable software
components in the form of libraries, and includes tools that support
this scheme. A library installed as a findlib component is also called
a package. The point is that the findlib scheme allows it to store
metainformation about the library, especially how it can be used in
programs. The packages are kept in the filesystem hierarchy, but the
directory structure is defined by findlib, and there is no way to
deviate from this standard. The library contains functions to look the
directory up that stores a package, to query metainformation about a
package, and to retrieve dependency information about multiple packages.
There is also a tool that allows the user to enter queries on the
command-line. In order to simplify compilation and linkage, there are
new frontends of the various OCaml compilers that can directly deal
with packages.

Log message:
Patch to devel/ocaml-findlib to not install num library

The num library was split off from ocaml. ocamlfind installs META files
for it if it is detected, but this is not the correct behaviour. This
patch disables detection, which is needed if package updates are to work.

Log message:

Log message:
Fix indentation in buildlink3.mk files.

The actual fix as been done by "pkglint -F */*/buildlink3.mk", and was
reviewed manually.

There are some .include lines that still are indented with zero spaces
although the surrounding .if is indented. This is existing practice.
