Do feel free to open up build failure issues on:

Both of those compile fine on MacOS X and Linux, but quite probably fail
on BSD with some random Makefile problem.  Should be easy to fix...

Right... it checks for cstruct, but the other libs are transitive dependencies
needed for cstruct to compile.  I don't think those are meant to into the
DNS _oasis file.

I don't understand this.  Do you mean that ocaml-dns checks for OPAM? 
It doesn't do anything with OPAM at all; it just calls the OCaml toolchain
on the current PATH.

You might want to do delete setup.data if you're seeing odd caching issues
in OASIS, and rerun the build.  I find that it doesn't pick up compiler
changes sometimes.
