The standard way to add OCaml packages to RHEL would be to use EPEL
(http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL).

Unfortunately support for OCaml packages in EPEL-4 (RHEL-4) was very
poor indeed.  We only supported OCaml 3.09.2 + three other packages,
specifically camlimages, ocaml-SDL and freetennis.

If you can assure me that (a) you can use EPEL-4 (ie. your admins will
allow you to add it as an extra repository), and (b) that you'll test
this, and (c) you can give me a complete list of OCaml packages you'd
like, then I can have a look at what it would take to add those
packages to EPEL-4 for you.

Note that we cannot upgrade the base OCaml package (3.09.2) in EPEL
releases, because EPEL is supposed to be super-stable.

If not the above, then your best bet is probably to use GODI.

to track the status of OCaml in Fedora / RHEL / EPEL.
