It seems to me that you hadn't set the environment variable
"OCAML_LIB_INSTALL" to your installation directory before "make"ing the
library, i.e. it's default is "+contrib" now:

The path leading to this directory is added to the generated OCaml-library
so that it can find the shared C-library. Usually things should also work
when you set your LD_LIBRARY_PATH appropriately in your shell or even add
this path to your global /etc/ However, the preferred solution
is surely to let the library now where to find things it depends on.
