In OCaml you can either also use the C-preprocessor or the preprocessor
camlp4, e.g. (using OCamlMakefile for specifying the preprocessor in
the topmost comment):

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
(*pp camlp4o pa_macro.cmo *)

open Printf

DEFINE Compile_code

let a () = printf "toto\n"

let _ =
  IFDEF Compile_code
  THEN
    let t = 1 in a ()
  ELSE
    ()
  END
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Or as usual with cpp:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
(*pp cpp *)

open Printf

#define Compile_code

let a () = printf "toto\n"

let _ =
  #ifdef Compile_code
    let t = 1 in a()
  #else
    ()
  #endif
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
