Using the latest ocaml-4.06 my build of sysutils/xentools48 (also

Yup, this happens quite a lot with 4.06. The -safe-string option is now enabled by default, which means that strings are immutable (bytes is then the type for mutable strings) and this kind of thing happens.

As a temporary fix, you can use the -unsafe-string compile option with ocamlc (which will make the string and bytes types identical), but of course this should really be fixed upstream.
