Are you using the vanilla 3.06, or did you follow the instructions in
this page ? <http://caml.inria.fr/caml-macosx-howto/index.html>

There is a signal-related problem with 3.06 on MacOS 10.2, due to a
change in an undocumented API between 10.1 and 10.2.  The web page above
gives a patch to fix this problem (and also the Sys.command bug).

While I'm talking to the list, the page also explains how to get
Caml Light working on Mac OS X.
