Can someone explain it in simpler terms?Looks like there is a bug somewhere since some files look like ELF files like /usr/bin/camlp4oof.opt? An ocaml weirdness or a bug in rpm?
OK, I think I get it now.All the *.opt files are native ELF binaries. They're compiled by the OCaml compiler (it does its own code generation) and linked by ld, or rather by gcc used as a wrapper around ld.
$ file usr/bin/camlp4oof.optusr/bin/camlp4oof.opt: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.9, stripped
The ocamlrun scripts also look like binary (arch dependent?) stuff so it is a logical that there is conflict. It certainly requires something to be done at the rpm level, but I am far from being an expert on those issues.
The files which begin with #!/usr/bin/ocamlrun are bytecode files. Even though it's called "bytecode" it isn't portable between architectures. It's not like Java bytecode. So consider these to be like binaries too.
