Not directly. You could use IF .. THEN .. ENDIF and have both.
Or perhaps you could add

	if .. do .. done

to Ocaml -- "if .. then .. " and "if .. do .. " are both
supported in Felix which uses Ocamlyacc to parse it,
I think indicating LALR1 can distinguish these two cases?
However camlp4 is recursive descent isn't it?
