The rule in the Makefile.am is:

        mkdir -p $(DESTDIR)$(OCAMLLIB)
        mkdir -p $(DESTDIR)$(OCAMLLIB)/stublibs
        $(OCAMLFIND) install \
          -ldconf ignore -destdir $(DESTDIR)$(OCAMLLIB) \
          $(PACKAGE_NAME) \

So that must mean that DESTDIR is not being set.

There are also environment variables that ocamlfind itself will use
(see findlib.conf(5)).  Although they don't appear to be relevant here
it may be worth looking at that man page.
