Actual results:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lcurl
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Comment 1 Michael Ekstrand 2011-06-12 00:44:02 UTC
I have committed a change which adds curl-devel as a Requires: for both the ocaml-curl and ocaml-curl-devel packages.  Since ocaml-curl uses -custom rather than ocamlmklib for building the cma file, the curl-devel package is required to use it in the toplevel (and ocamlmktop is required for toplevel use).

Therefore, I propose this hard-wired dependency as a temporary solution until upstream starts using ocamlmklib (bug 712635).  If this is an acceptable solution, let me know & I can start a rawhide build and merge it to f15 as well.
