OCamlConf is an OCaml build tool that resembles GNU autoconf to the user, but uses OCaml in the backend rather than shell script. It is a library for writing "configure" scripts in OCaml as well as a front-end for creating these cross-platform "configure" scripts.

Release Notes: The configuration module was changed to use a more easily extensible object-oriented approach and give better output to the user. The command line tool module was changed to associate both a program and flags with an abstract action, where before it merely knew one set of flags for each program.
Release Notes: A trivial bug in the configure script that prevented 'make opt' from working was fixed.
Release Notes: The spurious uninstall-findlib command was removed for projects that only install executables.
Release Notes: The program now generates a single "configure" from your "configure.ml" written in OCaml instead of both "configure" and "configure_out.ml". This configure will run on any system with a Bourne shell, sed, and OCaml. The modules were refactored to allow finer-grained control, and the documentation was improved in both quality and quantity.
