Definitely it won't compile out of the box. Before compiling Ocaml in a
non-Unix environment you have to manually configure it, create necessary
makefiles and port numerous system libs to your system (DOS-32?). It is not
that easy, if possible at all ...

As for Windows-targeted gcc, I was able to port Ocaml 3.03-alpha to the
native Win32 gcc (mingw). The patch was posted here some times ago.

Hope to hear from you soon,
