That is probably not so hard if your processor runs some Linux kernel, 
or if you want to run only ocaml bytecode (not native).

The point is in what kind of runtime environment will your Ocaml run?

Also, what is your development toolchain? Are executables in ELF format? ...

What is your knowledge of Ocaml internals (notably the stdlib, the 
runtime C API)?

Do you have a usual C lib?
