[opam-devel] Using binaries

The package/compiler descriptions fetch an archive and run custom commands for 
build and install, so although the standard repo only provides source 
packages, you are free to build from source or just download and install a 
precompiled binary: Opam itself is agnostic in that regard.

Hope this helps,
