Unfortunately there is no basic conversion to ocaml 4.06, which has some changes related with return types of certain core functions (mainly now return bytes instead of string), and also it's no easy to move cryptokit 1.7 to ocaml-cryptokit package, because ocaml in arch does not support dynamic linking.

I will update the PKGBUILD to force a lower version of ocaml in dependencies. This will not resolve the problem and sks will still no buildable with current arch packages. I guess that we will need to wait to new sks release.

Any idea to resolve that is welcome of course :) Probably we should mark the package out-of-date anyway...

I updated sks to version 1.1.3 and got it to build:

Note that I didn't test this so you should double check my work.

The package needs to updated to SKS version 1.1.3 by 1 August 2012 for continued participation in the keyservers pool, per Kristian Fiskerstrand, 24 June 2012. The current source may be found at (it is no longer on Google Code) and the cryptokit stuff will need to be fixed for it to work.
