Hello Jérôme,

There's a rather outdated git repo at:
http://git.annexia.org/?p=fedora-mingw.git;a=tree which has some MinGW
ocaml packages. I think that might be a good starting point.

In any case, Richard Jones (rwmjones on IRC) would know best about the
current state of ocaml packages. You might want to pop in to
#fedora-mingw channel on irc.freenode.net to discuss it.

You are very welcome to contribute. I can see how getting the ocaml
cross compiler in Fedora would make life lot easier.

Hope this helps,
