- Subject: [ITP] flexdll
FlexDLL creates binaries whose symbols can be resolved at runtime,
despite the limitations of the PE format. It is required by OCaml for
dynamic linking support on Cygwin. This package contains patches to fix
data auto-imports, shared libgcc, and to remove some Win32-isms:
FlexDLL itself is written in OCaml but is compiled into native code, so
it needs an OCaml (with or without dynlink support) at build time only.
Due to its unique nature, it is obviously not in any *NIX distro, so I
suppose this needs to be voted on.
