I have no problems doing that, but I've only tried it on the debug
version of ocamlrun.  To build it:

cd .../byterun
make ocamlrund
cp ocamlrund /usr/local/bin/ocamlrun   (wherever you installed ocamlrun)
cp libcamlrund.a /usr/local/lib/ocaml/libcamlrun.a   (idem)
ranlib /usr/local/lib/ocaml/libcamlrun.a

Then you can compile with ocamlc and run your programs under gdb.
Be aware that the debug version is noticeably slower because the
memory manager does a lot of checking on its data structures.
