[Build-common-hackers] Bug#355504: cdbs: should not build-depend on ocaml-native-compilers

Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.35
Severity: minor

cdbs build-depends on ocaml-native-compilers | ocaml, which seems to
confuse autobuilders on architectures where ocaml-native-compiler
does not exist. On the one hand this is a bug of the autobuilder,
on the other hand the build-dependency on ocaml-native-compiler is
completely uncessary since there is only one small ocaml source file
(the only difference between ocaml-native-compiler and ocmal is that
the former contains compiler executables in native code, instead of 
ocaml bytecode, which only is relevant when you have to compile
very large programs).

Please just build-depend on ocaml.
