binutils is the likely culprit, i would say, especially given the way ocamlopt
fails, and the fact that it was a cvs snapshot only augments that fear.

Julien, could you maybe try downgrading to the older binutils version, and
seeing what went wrong ? 

As said on irc, the likely solution here would be to disable the alpha native
compilers until the solution is found.
