OK, I've opened a bug about this, since this a very vital issue if
things are still failing:

Please can you fill in more details in the above report.  In
particular, these would be very helpful:

rpm -qa | grep ocaml

The full error message(s) of any failures you see.

Run commands with 'export OCAMLRUNPARAM=v=0x1ff' and report
any messages.

'strace' any programs which fail and attach the strace.
