The typescript shows the following error:

ocamlmklib -L./../../Programs -lbrlapi -oc brlapi_stubs brlapi_stubs.o
** Fatal error: Cannot find file "libgcc_s"

libgcc_s ships with gcc4 only, so it looks like ocaml depends on gcc4
now, probably since its recent update.

You may not need the OCaml bindings being built there though. I see
you can disable them with the --disable-caml-bindings configure
