If we're going to make libminios installable separately, does anyone
have a preference for ocamlfind vs pkg-config (or something else)?

For openlibm, pkg-config is probably the way go, and it might make
sense to do the same with libminios (to make it useful outside of
OCaml projects).

Will we expect people to install these dependencies themselves, or is
the plan to bundle them with mirage-platform?
