I agree with your suggestions, and I'll use your patches and cygport
file, except for the way you implement this:

I think it's a bad idea to have something named "ocaml" that doesn't
implement the full upstream package.  What I will do instead is:

ocaml-base   for the system except camlp4
ocaml-camlp4 for camlp4
ocaml        an empty helper package that depends on ocaml-base and ocaml-camlp4

I'm not sure what to name the base package: it could be ocaml-base or
ocaml-core.  Is there a generally-accepted naming convention for such
