I get the following if i try to compile opa_v1869 on a Fedora 16 system:

Congrats, you're all set. Installation will be done in:

camlzip 1.0.4 has been "manually" installed (make all allopt install installopt). The installation directory contains:

ls /usr/local/lib/ocaml/zip/

dllcamlzip.so gzip.cmi gzip.cmx gzip.mli libcamlzip.a zip.a zip.cma zip.cmi zip.cmx zip.cmxa zip.mli

I'm not sure if it's a problem with camlzip and/or opa by the way. Because if i try to compile testzlib.ml (a test file included with camlzip), i get the same error:

ocamlc -ccopt -g -g -I +zip unix.cma zip.cma testzlib.ml

File "testzlib.ml", line 4, characters 2-15:
Error: Unbound module Zlib

This is a problem related to findlib. Specifically, this happens when camlzip is installed without findlib, when findlib itself is present on the system. When installing camlzip, type

sudo make install-findlib

instead of make install or make installopt.
