Re: [Caml-list] [ANN] beta-release of OPAM

I would suggest that OPAM should always set the variable OCAMLFIND_CONF to $HOME/.opam/$COMPILER/lib/findlib.conf, so that, whatever the "ocamlfind" that ocamlbuild uses, it will always use the packages installed by OPAM.

Can't this be automatically done by defining the variable in the .opam of ocamlfind ?

It definitely needs to be fixed :-)

It's been fixed on trunk now.

Thanks for the quick fix!  Looking at the patch, the problem
seems to be that ocamlbuild distinguishes between built-in tools
(presumably the ocaml toolchain binaries), and external tools.

Is there any reason why ocamlbuild shouldn't just unconditionally
search the PATH for the compiler tools as well?  It's very confusing
to have it override some binaries and not others.
