Package: libllvm-ocaml-2.7-dev
Version: 2.7-6
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

$ file /usr/lib/ocaml/METAS/META.llvm-2.7 
/usr/lib/ocaml/METAS/META.llvm-2.7: ASCII text
$ ocamlfind query llvm-2.7
ocamlfind: Package `llvm-2.7' not found

Dot is not allowed in findlib package names (it is used to delimit

Moreover META file references 'llvm' in requires, this is wrong too.

Moreover package as a whole doesn't provide stublibs so
it is not usable in toplevel and bytecode (without -custom), this
applies to libllvm-ocaml-dev too.
