Subject: Executable stacks in ocaml

I am one of the gentoo maintainers of ocaml and we had a couple of QA
reports saying that binaries produced by ocaml had the stack marked as
executable (I understand this is a problem for hardened systems as it
can cause security issues).

Is there a way to tell ocaml to mark the stack as non-executable
or is it part of the compiler design and thus can't be changed?
