It seems that we are going with option 2 for ocaml ports now and many new ports

speed up the process of packaging new ocaml ports for MacPorts?

So I'm not familiar with such a tool yet. However, opam files contain all the information MacPorts would want to build an ocaml package, and it should be very simple to parse them into Portfiles. The format of an opam file is pretty trivial. I never have had the time to do this, but it would be very welcome if someone did it.
