Do you think it's better that ocaml and all ocaml programs fail to build
for the branch?   As far as I can tell this is some build detection nit
and the library isn't being built for some not particularly good reason.

Or would you rather we revert the ocaml update entirely?

I can see your point though, so how about applying it for the branch,
and then reverting it on head?   I would certainly like to see this
fixed properly, but so far that hasn't happened and there haven't even
been any theories floated yet.   It seems better to paper over this for
the branch than to take the more disruptive step of reverting the ocaml
