The bug is not in ocamlmklib, but in camlimages (or its godi port).
You're not supposed to pass -cclib options to ocamlmklib, except in
some very special cases. The above line should simply be:
   ocamlmklib -linkall -o ci_jpeg \
        jpeg.cmx oJpeg.cmx -L/usr/local/godi/lib -ljpeg
and ocamlmklib would automatically add the necessary runtime paths in
the syntax required for this system.
