Actually, I'm using Ubuntu.
But since I could not find any bindings in Ocaml on any architecture (except fedora), I didn't think it was an important parameter of the problem.

Thanks for the info about the future though.

Dear Johan,

You don't say which distribution you are using. I look after the Debian
packages (and hence by extension the Ubuntu ones) and I have tended to
be conservative about introducing new language bindings. We got bitten
with the Ada bindings because not all of the architectures Debian supports
had a working gnat compiler at the time and this caused problems getting
the packages into the stable version.

Having said that, after the current freeze and the release of Debian
squeeze I intend to add in a new packages including the ocaml bindings
and the new qt drivers.
