I forgot to mention: my plan was to also bring it up on their forum.
In the form of a question, like in Jeopardy. =)
(The question being: `Why do you have breaking changes in-between minor revisions.'
I'll do so after reporting the duplicate TOC entries per chapter in the pkgsrc Manual PDF ;))

That's the thing, though :I really don't.
And most respectfully too: I really dig what they are going for and everything.
But all I am in for here is downloading movies and animes.
There are sporadic updates to MLDonkey's Git . Mainly aimed at fixing the build; as well as removing features that became irrelevant.
I think it's just edonkey and bittorrent which have fallen off popularity.
Whatever happened to sharing? I ask
Anyways, MLDonkey is pretty much the only headless option, and second overhall most popular on *Nix after aMule.
Anyways I will keep looking at fixing that batch mode for compiling OCaml locally in the configure script:
This will work as intended: if the user happens to have a compatible version of OCaml installed, it should use that, if not it will silently download and use a temporary one that's fit for MLDonkey. (at leasst I think.)
As a separate step, one could also update to work with 4.09 or even .10, as you suggest
I wonder if someone will on the upstream?
I am tempted to just wait and only bother the Caml people; and mldonkey if the patch to configure is relevant.
