It could be due to a gcc installation problem.  I had no problems
compiling OCaml under Solaris 2.9 using either Sun's provided gcc 2
or a precompiled gcc 3 that I found on a "Sun Software" site.

To diagnose the problem, it would be useful to stick a "-verbose"
option to ocamlmklib in the call

But in a hurry you can also configure OCaml with the -no-shared-libs
option.  That might be enough to avoid running into the problem.
