- Nov 6, 2013thanks a lot, indeed it seems to work ! great.
I tried with sdl. I remove my old installation of ocamlsdl, and then ocamlfind was able to
use the opam version.
in fact : `ocamlfind ocamlc -where` gives
because this is where the standard library is, but
`ocamlfind printconf` tells me that the search path is
maybe some words about this on the opam FAQ would be welcome. At least, in order to know how all is supposed to work.

You should use ocamlfind (opam install ocamlfind).
Then, supposed your PATH includes your opam switch bindir
(which it should), then:
ocamlfind ocamlc -where
should point toward your opam switch libdir.
At this point, compiling using ocamlfind boils down to:
ocamlfind ocamlopt -package lib1,lib2,lib3 ...other-options... -c module.ml
where lib1 etc are the name registered in the META files (usually the same as
the opam package name)
Since OcamlMakefile already uses ocamlfind (apparently for libraries specified
by the PACKS parameter) I guess everything should runs all right.
