The current "example" provided with HLVM is a very minimal ML-style language
implementation. However, there was a Jane Street Summer Project proposal to
port OCaml's current compiler to HLVM/LLVM. It hasn't been accepted.

But if HLVM gets more complete and enhanced, yeah, it would require porting
the compiler to target HLVM/LLVM.
