I understand that Peter tries to compile the whole mxe on its platform (slax). However, it fails at ocaml.
From the log I see, the error comes from the "flexdll" tool, which comes from package "ocaml-flexdll". So it would be worth trying the patch on "ocaml-native" which is used to generate ocaml-flexdll ?
I don't know I to help with this problem otherwise. Maybe reporting to flexdll (Alan frish) ?
By the way, you wouldn't miss a lot by not being able to compile ocaml packages...
Best regards,

No, it appears to be unrelated. Are you on a 32-bit system? I think it's an issue with the ocaml compiler and long strings [1].

Could you try dropping the attached patches into the src/ directory and try the build again? They're from this bug report:


and don't break anything, but I've no way of testing if they fix the issue.

Hi Peter,

I can confirm that it only happens on 32-bit systems, but those patches don't fix it. To continue with it (and dependents) excluded, run:

make ocaml-lablgtk2_BUILD= ocaml-cairo_BUILD= ocaml-camlimages_BUILD=

or simply

make -k

Hi William,

I've attached Peter's original log file, could you take a look at it? The patches at:


Don't resolve the issue.
