ocaml won't compile/install {Scanned}

Hey gang,

I am trying to install ocaml so I can compile unison which depends on 
ocaml so I can
synchronize my files between my MacBookPro and AMD64 Ubuntu box.  Had to get
the latest unison (2.27.10) I could find to overcome a 64 bit integer 
bug which was crashing
file transfers.

Since then Unison has worked flawlessly between MBP 10.4 and Ubuntu-AMD64.

Then I did the leopard upgrade.  Wrecked apple mail, now using 
Thunderbird and I can't
get my old version of ocaml (3.10.0) to compile.  It compiled fine on 10.4.

So I downloaded MacPorts to get that version of ocaml:

sh-3.2# port search ocaml
ocaml                          lang/ocaml     3.10.0       Objective 
Caml is an implementation of the ML language
ocaml-mode.el                  lang/ocaml-mode.el 3.05         An EMACS 
major mode for editing OCaml programs.
ocamlduce                      lang/ocamlduce 3.08.4pl3    Objective 
Caml extensions for manipulating XML

But when I try to install I get:

sh-3.2# port install ocaml
Error: Error executing darwin_9: invalid command name 
Error: Unable to open port: Error evaluating variants

I don't think it is a bad install of MacPorts as I have loaded several 
packages succesfully:

sh-3.2# port installed
The following ports are currently installed:
  expat @2.0.1_0 (active)
  gettext @0.17_0 (active)
  libiconv @1.11_6 (active)
  py-chart @1.37_0 (active)
  python24 @2.4.4_1+darwin_9 (active)
  python25 @2.5.1_2+darwin_9 (active)

Is their some way I can edit the sources on ocaml to get it to compile?

If not, How long do these type things usually take to get fixed in 
ie when should I check back....daily, weekly, monthly???

Thanks, Henry Hollenberg
