My guess, as Anil suggested, is that brew fetches an archive instead of a git clone, so getting the git hash in the build system doesn't work. OR it may be an issue with the `with-ocamlbuild` build system, I'll check what brew does.

hm :(
I think I may know where that comes from (there is a preprocessing of the request taking place for the internal solver, which hasn't been done in this case. Never liked that part). I'll see if there is an easy workaround.

> `brew remove apscud` is my fix for now, I need some work to get done. 

Sorry to hear that, and thanks anyway for your help with the debugging !
