Summary:
install/reinstall doesn't work when installation log unavailable.

Detailed description
This can happen when you installed a library using a downloaded .tar.gz and you want to install the darcs version for instance, and you removed the old directory.

The problem is that ocamlfind doesn't allow to replace the old version. In case it happens, setup.ml should run "ocamlfind remove" and then retry "ocamlfind install".

It is indeed the same issue.

Could you have a look at
https://forge.ocamlcore.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=758&group_id=54&atid=291

I think the issue is almost the same.

Proposed solution so far:
Display what should be done (e.g. ocamlfind remove "toto") and let the user do it.

Regards
Sylvain
