I have locally an ocaml4-pcre pkgbuild but it fail to build, issue with dune, anyone want a copy?

Just as information: ocamlnet does not work with current ocaml-compiler. With opam switching is easy (at least, if opam works correctly, which I'm not sure is always the case). Might become a bit of a mess, when using system wide installed packages for OCaml and then needing old ocaml versions just for the ocamlnet package.

Any ideas on how to handle this well?

It's an issue with ocaml-pcre, I've posted a fix in that AUR, see:

Seems to be unable to find the ocaml-pcre in makedepends.

Checking for PCRE... not found
Sorry, PCRE was requested.
Get the PCRE-OCaml library from:,
or disable the build against PCRE-Ocaml (not recommended).

Seems "" is down now. If anyone is eager to use this package right now, use another mirror site to download the tarball: change "" to "" in the PKGBUILD.

Firefox says, when I want to view

"The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments."

So, this is not a package issue.

Would be nice if people would check such things before writing a comment here.

@raulo.olapodrido: there is ocaml 4.06 now the current ocaml in Arch. You have to recompile ocamlnet, and before that, you have to recompile any ocaml-stuff that ocamlnet relies on. See "Dependencies" above.

(Should be sufficient, to first compile ocaml-pcre again and then ocamlnet.)

build fails:

File "netstring_pcre.mli", line 1:
Error: /usr/lib/ocaml/pcre/pcre.cmi
is not a compiled interface for this version of OCaml.
It seems to be for an older version of OCaml.
