In SVN, I've added the ml-lpt lib to the set of libraries distributed
with MLton and also fixed the above dangling reference.  This doesn't
include the ml-lpt tools (ml-ulex and ml-antlr) in the MLton
distribution, but you should be able to use SML/NJ's versions of these
tools (just be sure to use the "--strict-sml" flag with ml-ulex to
avoid the use of vector literals).
