These two are (should be anyway!) equivalent -- the Makefile target
just does the same as the wiki instructions. We expanded what's
happening in the wiki instructions to try and make the explanation
less "magic". (Please do file an issue / submit a PR against the
mirage-www repository if you think that needs to be better explained!)

That's ... odd. I'd expect things to work if those packages are
installed. Could you check that you've executed

eval $(opam config env)

...in your shell and try again please?

I've got a deadline today to hit, but I'll try and take a look later
this evening/tomorrow.
