Bah, that won't be an issue anymore if you switch to 'ocamlfind
--recursive' anyway.

Yup, found it. The dir should be listed here:
  % cat /usr/lib/ocaml/ld.conf
So it's definitly not a demexp issue, i will see that with our
OCaml maintainer. I had other minor changes to push anyway.

Great, thanks.

Ok, i've just `man tla` and checked out the dev tree a few
minutes ago, so from now i should stop asking for things you've
already done :)

That's what the gentoo init script does already, but you know,
sometimes daemons have some --uid/--gid options, and then they can
be launch as root, prepare whatever they have to prepare while
still privilegied (like changing ownership of log files, creating
whatever workdir/workfile they need, etc.), and then they fork to
background using the unprivilegied user. Often, the last action
of the privilegied process is to write the pidfile for the
background process, and then die.

But yup, that's not some must-have features since a decent init
script with start-stop-daemon can do ~ the same.

Ok, you're definitly less lazy than i am ;)
