The problem is that it would force all users of this package to have ocaml installed. The same as for libxml2 and gnutls.

They all are optional dependencies that are detected at build time. Unfortunately makepkg is not able to express this nicely.

Can you add ocaml as a dependency? libnbd's ocaml bindings are required for virt-v2v

Additionally, libnbd has gnutls libxml2 as dependencies, yet this package omits them.

The correct download link is:

The github releases are automatically generated by github (we can't turn this "feature" off unfortunately). They don't contain all the files required to actually build libnbd.
