What you can do is to create a thin C layer between your Ocaml and C++ code.
I am including a very simple code - an interface to the Cubpack
library in Ocaml.

If your interface is big, you might try some of the authomatic
builders like SWIG (http://www.swig.org) which I understand can wrap
C++ classes for use in Ocaml.
