Probably not, I already patched it myself.

The build fell over well down the track due to
a mess on my system. 

* I have an AMD64 running Ubuntu

* Ocaml 3.08.2 native code compiler is broken for amd64

* Ocaml 3.08.3+3 (from CVS) fixes the problem, i have that
  built in /usr/local

* Ubuntu uses Debian packages for Ocaml stuff
  Sven (debian maintainer) has fixed the problem
  but it is unlikely the change has propagated to 'stable'
  and even less likely it has propagated to Ubuntu,
  which has just frozen auto wraps

* GODI can't build the CVS version, which is 3.09 anyhow
  and doesn't include the patch

* the equeue and other packages I installed are for a 
  a different version of Ocaml than the one that works

* findlib is getting very confused and so am I

I really need to use GODI because it rebuilds from
source when Ocaml changes, and can track CVS

I seem to change Camels often .. ;(
