No, it's 10.4 for a reason. That version of ocaml won't install on  
10.5 stock because 10.5 now conforms to UNIX03, which means there are  
some non-backwards-compatible changes with 10.4. By setting the  
deployment target to 10.4 we are saying "use the old 10.4 APIs, not  
the new UNIX03-compliant APIs", which means it once again compiles.
