Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.8.1, Package name: ocaml-findlib-1.8.1, 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:
all: replace SUBST_SED with the simpler SUBST_VARS

pkglint -Wall -r --only "substitution command" -F

With manual review and indentation fixes since pkglint doesn't get that
part correct in every case.

Log message:
Made file optional in devel/ocaml-findlib.

The graphics/META file might be installed or not depending on presence
of its library. I added it to the PLIST as an option to reflect this.

Log message:
ocaml-findlib: Fix PLIST.

This needs to be fixed correctly at some point, as if x11/ocaml-graphics
happens to be installed then this file will exist.  This at least fixes
all bulk builds for a start.
