I'd say don't use camlidl. It seems to be unsupported software. There  
is for example a bug the handling of records of floats only that I  
reported a long time ago but was lost in the bugtracker update. I  
guess it wasn't fixed.

Try to understand the caml-c interface (chap. 18 of the manual) and  
then use C pre-processor hacks to streamline the development of your  
bindings, have a look at lablgl to see what I mean by that.
