Try ocamlc -verbose to see the actual call to the linker.
One first possibility (too basic?) is that Visual C++ is not in your path.
Another one (not related with this error message, but who knows) is
that the linking libraries tcl83.lib and tk83.lib are not where
labltk.cma looks for them, that is c:\tcl\lib.
