Indeed.  And on that note I would like to report a similar problem
with the "ocamlfind+ocamlbuild" plugin that was discussed on this
list some weeks ago, and available on the Ocamlbuild wiki:

This is the offending code:

(* When one link an OCaml library/binary/package, one should use -linkpkg.
flag ["ocaml"; "link"] & A"-linkpkg";

As Stéphane mentioned, -linkpkg should normally not be used on libraries.
(I have personally run into problems because of this).  The solution I
am using is to apply -linkpkg only when linking programmes:

(* When linking Ocaml programmes (and programmes only!), we use -linkpkg.
flag ["ocaml"; "link"; "program"] & A"-linkpkg";
