Two years ago, when ocaml didn't have dynamic loading, this was a
requirement, like for old versions of Tcl as you say.

Nowadays, except on some exotic platform, this is just a question of
comfort: the toplevel is configured to make its use easier.
You can do the same thing by passing some options to the standard
        ocaml -w s -I +lablgtk lablgtk.cma gtkInit.cmo
