Just in case you decided not to do that because of the extra commits I
made after that message, I'm finished now, really. I blame the OCaml
runtime system. On platforms where OCaml can only be compiled to
bytecode it's trivially easy to create a useless package that builds
perfectly. Such packages need to include a dependency on the OCaml
runtime interpreter and dh_shlibdeps doesn't pick up the library
dependencies as they're incorporated into the bytecode.

Anyway, I'm pretty certain that the packaged monotone-viz should run on
platforms without a native-code OCaml compiler. Pity that it seems like
no-one has *ever* tried to do so.

Also, could you push your 0.48 monotone packaging commit?
