OK. Nice attempt, and properly splitting the work with ocaml's
configuration script.
By the way, I'm not sure this is a good idea to make labltk an
optional package, for two reasons:
- since it gets configured with ocaml, you have to recompile ocaml if
  something goes wrong (your pre-search may help, but since you don't
  check by explicitly linking this may still be wrong).
- it includes ocamlbrowser, which is an ocaml tool expected to be
  there

If your motivation is to allow binary packages including only part of
the stuff, then it might be a better idea to make ocaml a metapackage,
and have packages ocaml-core, ocaml-graphics, ocaml-labltk,
ocaml-camlp4 as dependencies.
