You mention that you try to build 3.11.1. The SBo repo contains 3.12.1. I
quickly removed
and built ocaml. It is built without any error on my machine which is not a
clean install.

I would like to ask, that your 3.11.1 is a typo, or you really want to
build 3.11.1?
- if it is really 3.11.1, than you should update your SBo repo, and try to
build it again
- If it is a typo than could you re-check it in a clean updated slackware
and updated SBo
  repo? If you cannot check I will do it later in this week.
