No

when i build toplevel in the bin/ directory, Sdl and
others modules are
unbound, we must move bin/toplevel in the src/
directory where
objects are.
we must fix it in order to distribute a *good* toplevel
in local/bin/

    Sven Luther wrote some help:

    A quick look at lablgtk gives :

    lablgtktop: $(CLIBS) $(MLLIBS) $(INITOBJS)
    $(TOPLEVEL) -o $@ $(MLLINK) -ccopt -L. $(MLLIBS)
    $(INITOBJS)

    to build it, (there is a wrapper on top of this too, which
    does :

    ---------------/usr/bin/lablgtk-----------------------------------
    #!/bin/sh

    thread="no"

    case $1 in
    -help)
    echo "Usage: lablgtk [-thread] <options> [script-file]"
    echo " -thread use the threaded version of the
    toplevel"
    ;;
    -thread)
    thread=yes
    shift
    ;;
    esac

    if test $thread = yes; then
    toplevel="/usr/lib/ocaml/lablgtk/lablgtktop_t -I
    +threads"
    else
    toplevel=/usr/lib/ocaml/lablgtk/lablgtktop
    fi

    exec $toplevel -w s -I +lablGL \ -I /usr/lib/ocaml/lablgtk $*
    ---------------/usr/bin/lablgtk-----------------------------------

    and it installs the wrapper in bindir (/usr/bin) and the
    toplevel in
    $(INSTALLDIR) (that is /usr/lib/ocaml/lablgtk).

    So i would say :

    1) install everything in /usr/lib/ocaml/sdl, or whatever.

    2) just build the toplevel with mktoplevel and the correct
    options, and
    install it in /usr/bin (it will be called ocamlsdl or
    something such)

    but most probably this will not work, because the user will
    then need to add
    the -I +sdl argument to this toplevel each time he uses it,
    so you could write
    a wrapper as above, but it in /usr/bin, and but the toplevel
    in
    /usr/lib/ocaml/sdl.

    now the toplevel is a script in $prefix/bin/ocamlsdl
    which launch $prefix/lib/ocaml/sdl/toplevel -i
    $prefix/lib/ocaml/sdl
