OCamlMakefile does that for you:

A "make bc" (or simply: "make") will build byte code, a "make nc" will
build native code for the sources you specify. In each case "make"
will only build what is still missing.

OCamlMakefile should scale up fairly well for medium-sized
OCaml-projects. The limitations / problems that appear with larger
projects are mostly related to general issues concerning "make", which
isn't a particularly well-suited tool for this purpose, but the only
one which is reliably installed on most development platforms.
