* OCaml with ocamlbuild (>= 3.12.1)
* findlib
* [optional] react (from

* [optional] ocaml-text (needed for the enhanced toplevel)
* [optional] ocamlssl (>= 0.4.0) (ocamlssl needs openssl) (>= 0.4.1 for MacOS)
* [optional] glib-2.0 development files and pkg-config
If the dependencies are not installed on your computer, you can use OPAM

They might also be available through your distribution.
* run "ocaml -configure" to configure sources
You can add '--enable-<lib>' to enable compilation of

In order to compile without libev support you must add
* run "ocaml -build" to compile
* run "ocaml -install" as root to install compiled libraries
* run "ocaml -uninstall" as root to uninstall them
HTML documentation is generated in _build/lwt.docdir/, but is not
installed by default.
If you get the development version you need to obtain OASIS
If you want to build the toplevel you have to install compiler
libraries. Under Debian it is the package ocaml-compiler-libs.
