This is a bug.  I suspect a better way to fix it though might
be to just remove all of this code - it's not required for
Ocaml >= 3.07 at all.

I have been attempting to get mod_caml working with a new installation of OCaml-3.07. After several failed attempts, I discovered that search paths for some required modules are hardcoded in mod_caml.ml. E.g.:

       ocamllibdir ^ "/pcre";
       ocamllibdir ^ "/postgres"]

Obviously, some users may have these packages in other locations. Moreover, these paths are not the default locations for recent versions of Pcre and Postgres: the default for Pcre (4.29 & 4.30) is $OCAMLLIBDIR/contrib; the
default for Postgres-20010808 is a Findlib installation, i.e. probably under $OCAML/lib/site-lib.

Suggested fix: create a file 'mod_caml.ml.in', using variables for the search paths; preprocess this file at build time to generate a 'mod_caml.ml' with the correct paths.
