Changes in lang/sml-nj since 110.9.1 to 110.38:

* Bug fixes, improvements to generated code, and miscellaneous
  user-invisible tweaks too numerous to mention.

* Autoloaded libraries now load correctly, due to the new
  `CM_PATHCONFIG' mechanism.  Autoloading failed in the package's
  previous version, despite the best effort of the do-install target.
  How many people ever used this package, anyway?

* New commands `ml-build' and `ml-makedepend'.  The former automates
  the process of building standalone heap images, while the latter
  generates dependencies for traditional makefiles.

* Major overhaul of the Compilation Manager (CM).  For example, most
  `' files now require including `$/', as well as
  substituting `$/' for `' wherever `' refers to an
  autoloaded library bundled with the system (e.g. `').
  For details, see, and
  the CM manual at .

* Reduced virtual memory consumption.

* Support for running under Mac OS X (Darwin).  Such support is not
  currently reflected in the pkgsrc, however, since I have no way to
  test it.

* The package now installs into ${PREFIX}/lib/smlnj, instead of
  ${PREFIX}/lib/sml-nj, for consistency with the package name.
