your system (look for libz.a or, get it from If you are running Linux or BSD, chances
are that your distribution provides precompiled binaries for this
- Edit the three variables at the beginning of the Makefile to reflect
the location where Zlib is installed on your system. The defaults
are OK for Linux.
- Do "make all".
- If the Objective Caml native-code compiler is available on your platform
(look for the "ocamlopt" executable), do "make allopt".
- Become super-user if necessary and do
make install
make installopt # if you did "make allopt" earlier
This installs the library in the standard Objective Caml library directory.
