今回はversion 3.0beta2のインストールをしました。(執筆時最新)

$ wget http://download.camlcity.org/download/ocamlnet-3.0test2.tar.gz
$ tar xzf ocamlnet-3.0test2.tar.gz
$ cd ocamlnet-3.0test2
$ ./configure

Effective options:
    -bindir /opt/local/bin
    -datadir /opt/local/lib/ocaml/site-lib/netstring

Writing Makefile.conf

Please check Makefile.conf.

You can now compile Ocamlnet by invoking
   make all
for the bytecode compiler, and optionally by invoking
   make opt
for the native-code compiler (if supported on your architecture).
Finally, a
   make install
will install the package(s).


$ make all
$ sudo make install

無事インストールも完了。使えるかテストします。まずはインタプリタ。「トップレベルでロードする」という意味がわからず5分ぐらいGoogle先生にご指導いただいた。Mac OSで実行した場合はすんなりできたけど、Ubuntuのほうでは、.ocamlinitに設定が必要でした。

$ vim .ocamlinit
+ #use "topfind"


$ ocaml
        Objective Caml version 3.11.2

Findlib has been successfully loaded. Additional directives:
  #require "package";;      to load a package

  #camlp4r;;                to load camlp4 (revised syntax)
  #predicates "p,q,...";;   to set these predicates
  Topfind.reset();;         to force that packages will be reloaded
