Comment (by pmetzger):

 omake is pretty obsolete at this point; the ocaml universe is mostly
 moving to dune as a build tool. My usual taste at this point is to only
 maintain tools needed for end packages that use ocaml, like Unison, Coq,
 the OPAM package manager, etc. Mostly, if one wants to be using OCaml
 stuff at this point, one should use the MacPorts OPAM package to install
 OPAM and just build things from there.

 Anyway, I'll assign this to myself, but I might not be inclined to
 actually fix it rather than obsoleting the port unless there's a good
 reason that it needs building inside of MacPorts. If Martin could explain
 why he needs it, I'll consider giving it a cleanup.
