     Does ocaml-1.05 create optimized code for the BSD operating 
   system version 2.1, with a pentium cpu?

Yes, the native code compiler is optimizing on all platforms.

   PS
     I got the following errors while trying to compile the "opt"
   option:

	   gcc -c -DSYS_bsd -o i386.o i386.S
	   i386.S:40:invalid character '_' in opcode
	   .....

The assembler of BSD/OS 2.1 is not compatible with its preprocessor !
I had the same problem, and finally resolved it by generating the
preprocessed source, and removing unnecessary space by hand. The
problem is that there should be no space between a label and the colon 
following it, bu the preprocessor introduce some, and then mixes up
labels and opcodes.

Hope it helps.
