OCAMLABI detection is broken

Bug Description

Binary package hint: dh-ocaml

The field OCAMLABI (or OCAML_ABI) seems to be being set incorrectly. In lucid, ocaml version is 3.11.2-1 but these fields seems to be set to 3.11.1 which cause problems on packages that use it as a virtual dependency.

For example, trying to install coq fails since it depends on ocaml-base-nox-3.11.1 which is a virtual package that is not installable (since the ocaml vesion is 3.11.2)

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  coq: Depends: ocaml-base-nox-3.11.1 which is a virtual package.
  coqide: Depends: liblablgtk2-ocaml-qrf42 which is a virtual package.
          Depends: ocaml-base-nox-3.11.1 which is a virtual package.
Unable to resolve dependencies! Giving up...
