Original bug ID: 5614
Reporter: cookedm
Assigned to: @zoggy
Status: closed (set by @zoggy on 2012-05-15T09:00:02Z)
Resolution: fixed
Priority: normal
Severity: major
Platform: 64-bit
OS Version: 10.7.4
Version: 3.12.1
Fixed in version: 4.00.0+dev
Category: ocamldoc

Bug description

Right now, ocamldoc.opt won't load native plugins that use standard library modules that it itself doesn't use. On OS X (10.7.4, 64-bit), at least, I get messages like

% ocamldoc.opt -i ../_build -g argot.cmxs
Error while loading file argot.cmxs:
error loading shared library: dlopen(../_build/argot.cmxs, 138): Symbol not found: _camlStack__pop_1043
Referenced from: /Users/dave/src/ocaml/argot/argot-1.0/_build/argot.cmxs
Expected in: flat namespace
in /Users/dave/src/ocaml/argot/argot-1.0/_build/argot.cmxs

Relinking ocamldoc.opt with -linkall (adding that flag to ocamldoc/Makefile to the $(OCAMLDOC_OPT) target) allows the above command to work without error.

I've checked, and I believe that ocamldoc.opt is the only tool in the OCaml source tree that uses Dynlink and isn't linked with -linkall.

Additional information

Patch attached to add -linkall.
