I found your email on the internet. My school's cluster is
running 64bit Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update

to proceed on this?
The standard way to add OCaml packages to RHEL would be to use EPEL
Unfortunately support for OCaml packages in EPEL-4 (RHEL-4) was very
poor indeed. We only supported OCaml 3.09.2 + three other packages,
specifically camlimages, ocaml-SDL and freetennis.
If you can assure me that (a) you can use EPEL-4 (ie. your admins will
allow you to add it as an extra repository), and (b) that you'll test
this, and (c) you can give me a complete list of OCaml packages you'd
like, then I can have a look at what it would take to add those
packages to EPEL-4 for you.
Note that we cannot upgrade the base OCaml package (3.09.2) in EPEL
releases, because EPEL is supposed to be super-stable.
If not the above, then your best bet is probably to use GODI.
PS. Please join https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-ocaml-list
to track the status of OCaml in Fedora / RHEL / EPEL.
