Description Alessandro Barbieri 2019-09-16 10:44:37 UTC
From their github https://github.com/ocaml/camlp4/blob/trunk/README.md

Camlp4 was a software system for writing extensible parsers for programming languages. Since August 2019, Camlp4 is no longer maintained.

...and now, after ocaml-4.09.0 bump we're screwed because all revdeps fail:

>>> Configuring source in /tmp/portage/dev-ml/camlp4-4.05_p1/work/camlp4-4.05-1 ...
This version of Camlp4 is for OCaml 4.05 but you are using OCaml 4.09.0.
If building Camlp4 directly from git, use the 4.09 branch.
