Should be add5wrapper(argv) -- as gcc's warnings told you.

Two things:

- You're not linking in add5-prog.o as far as I can see

- In static mode, the Unix linker is very picky about the relative
  order of -lxxx arguments on the command-line.  For more information,
  see the Info pages for GNU ld.  You probably don't need -static anyway.

The following works:

ocamlopt -output-obj add5.ml -o add5-prog.o
gcc -I`ocamlc -where` -c add5wrapperlib.c
gcc -c main.c
gcc -o mainprog.opt main.o add5wrapperlib.o add5-prog.o \
       -L`ocamlc -where` -lasmrun -ldl -lm

Add "-static" to the last line if you know you really need it.

Hope this puts you back on tracks.
