same here on Ubuntu 11.04
package i installed:
libpcre3-dev, libgtk2.0-dev, libcairo2-dev and libpango1.0-dev

You maybe need upgrade ubuntu to oneiric to have ocaml 3.12.0.

Does it still happen?

Still failing on Ubuntu 10.04 with ocaml: The Objective Caml toplevel, version 3.11.2

yes you need to upgrade to ocaml 3.12.
I've updated the configure script so the error message should be clearer
