This doesn't mean the compiler is set to generate 64bit objects
by default, iirc the solaris 8 boxes I worked on ran 64 bit on 
64 bit and nevertheless compiled stuff as 32bit. (yay).

See if you can pass a CPPFLAGS=-m64 to your compiler (gcc option,
if you're using sunpro pass the appropriate flag to the compiler
to enable/force 64bit compiling)...

I.e. no ocaml bug.

Maybe have a look at (gcc: gcc -dumpspecs which should among many
other things also tell you the default build/compile options...
E.g. on my sparc64, gcc tells me ...

*cpp_arch:
%{m32:%(cpp_arch32)} %{m64:%(cpp_arch64)} %{!m32:%{!m64:%(cpp_arch_default)}} 

(read as: passed m32? select cpp_arch32. passed m64? select cpp_arch64.
passed neither m32 nor m64 ? select cpp_arch_default.)

..and..

*cpp_arch32:


*cpp_arch64:
-D__arch64__

*cpp_arch_default:
-D__arch64__
