This was the patch I just added (attached).

I didn't want to get into the game of adding every single package[1]
to comps.xml, so I just added a handful of major, commonly used
packages.  For now at least.

On your specific point about omake, it's not so widely used.  Lots of
packages use ordinary (GNU) make + autoconf.  There are also competing
build systems like OCamlMakefile, ocamlbuild, and actually a few more.
(For a minority language, we do have far too many build systems ...)
