ocamlgsl are OCaml bindings to the GNU scientific library.
A spec file is included in the tarball.
This is a tracking bug for packaging this library.
Hezekiah: Please can you try this package and post your results here.
I have built the RPM on a x86 32bit CentOS 5 system using manually recompiled
OCaml 3.10.0 packages from Fedora. The packages were able to build and pass a
few basic tests (compiling and testing a program which uses the library).
It looks good from here.
I'll put in a review request for this package shortly.
For what it's worth, I tried to build the given ocaml-gsl .src.rpm on my F9pre
partition, and got the following result:
(lots of snipped output in which everything looks fine...)

The args foo is rhbz#439168 and should be fixed now
Comment 4 is a bug in xargs (see bug 439168).
This will work if you upgrade glibc and findutils to at least:
I tested the package again today and it seems to build and function properly on
a fairly up to date F9 install.
This is approved for Fedora now, so closed.
