Thus wrote yours truly after too much time spent writing Perl:

itz> kronstadt:/usr/local/src/ocaml/ocaml-3.04/otherlibs/unix$ ocaml
itz>         Objective Caml version 3.04

itz> # load "unix.cma" ;;
itz> Unbound value load
itz> # #load "unix.cma" ;;
itz> # open Unix ;;
itz> # execvp "od" [| "-c" |] ;;
itz> a^Eb
itz> 0000000 002541 005142
itz> 0000004
itz> kronstadt:/usr/local/src/ocaml/ocaml-3.04/otherlibs/unix$ 

itz> Obviously, the -c argument is not being passed.
itz> WTH ?!?

Please ignore :-)
