Here's the second version of the series: the first patch is unchanged,
the second patch is slightly better: the bootstrap ocaml 4.07 now run
"make alldepends" to generate all the .depend files, and installs them
to its output at share/depends. Then, ocaml-4.07 simply copies the
bootstrap data from this package (ocamlc, ocamllex, ocamlrun and all
the .depends) that were deleted from the archive, since they were
pre-generated. I feel much better about this patch than the previous
one. Thoughts?
