I wrote him too some time ago for the same reason and he didn't answer
that time too (hope everything is ok).
unfortunately many things depend on ocaml and it's not enough to
update it to the latest version, you have to verify that whatever
depends on it (as mandatory or optional) still works after the update:
this is the work of a maintainer and ocaml needs one.
for an idea on what depends on ocaml see this link (courtesy of Urchlay).
is there anyone interested in stepping in with that role?

> I sent this to the maintainer(also cc'd here) a month back and there's no response from them so far.
> If there's no objection, can we please update the package to the latest, with the attached patch that fixes build issues?

> Hope this finds you well and safe - I noticed that the slackbuild for ocaml that has your name listed as the maintainer is woefully out of date. So, I went ahead to get it working on the latest 4.11.1 version of ocaml and I have attached the diff here.
> In summary:
> * No more pre-build patching activity. Delete the .patch file
> * CFLAGS didn't work correctly, it was failing while linking the assembly. Pointed it directly to /usr/bin/as through the AS env var
> * DESTDIR for building target packages for installs on other machines.
> Would you be able to get it updated on SBo, please?
