           Summary: OCaml binding's Makefile.ocaml creates incorrect
           Product: Build scripts
           Version: 2.4
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Makefiles
        AssignedTo: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: salimma at fedoraproject.org

The build target 'install-deplibs' in Makefile.ocaml links files in
$(PROJ_libdir) to $(PROJ_libocamldir).

Unfortunately, when used within many build systems, all the $(PROJ_*) have
$(DESTDIR) prepended to them, meaning the links created are invalid within the
installed system.

The proper fix, using autoconf/automake/configure, is to have all the PROJ_*
variables *not* contain DESTDIR, and using $(DESTDIR)$(PROJ_*) in all the
install targets. But if llvm is moving to cmake in the near future, it might
not be worth fixing this.

My current workaround is to patch Makefile.ocaml to use $(OVERRIDE_libdir)
instead of $(PROJ_libdir) and pass the right value to 'make install'
