New draft packaging guidelines for OCaml



I've started a page for updating the packaging guidelines.

  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/OCaml

At the moment it's a straight copy of the packaging guidelines except
that I've updated 'ocaml-foolib.spec' from my private copy of that
file.

Some ideas:

 - how useful is the whole '%opt' stuff now that we have native
   compilation on every Fedora architecture?

 - use of chrpath and strip

 - should we finally distribute ocaml-find-requires/provides with
   upstream RPM?  They haven't changed in a long time.

 - note about some common rpmlint errors:

 - ISO-8859-1 - should we ban it from *.ml & *.mli files?
   https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=434694

 - camlp4/camlp5 syntax extensions are a bit different from a
   distribution point of view.  They usually don't need a -devel
   package, and they require *.cmo files to be distributed.
   And sometimes they should be noarch.
