Summary:
New macros and macros reworkd for OCaml autoconf

Detailed description
I worked on ocaml.m4 and modified it in several ways. These changes are public available:

https://github.com/michipili/ocaml-autoconf

Here is a summary of the changes

* I added documentation in the source, basically, iI pasted the content of the pod file.
While this adds redundancy, it is consistant and useful to have this information in the M4 file.
* I defined more macros AC_CHECK_OCAML, AC_CHECK_FINDLIB, and the corresponding
AC_NEED macros. These are trivial but useful enhancements.

These changes are backwards compatibles and are found in the branch topic/more-macros. There is further
NON-backward compatible changes in the branch topic/rework-check-package.

* The AC_CHECK_OCAML_PKG is renamed to AC_CHECK_FINDLIB_PKG. Its semantic is changed to
match other AC_CHECK_* macros found in autoconf.
* There is also an AC_NEED_OCAML_PKG macro.
