I'm OK with this....

Recapping my understanding: All or part of Thrift is written in the
OCaml language, and there are parts of the OCaml distribution which
are licensed under the LGPL which are intended to be modified and/or
distributed with OCaml sources, but are only used at build time.

If so, I'm comfortable treating this as a language/platform
dependency, i.e., those who are OK with OCaml would not have a problem
with this.
