OK, the provides in that package are totally wrong.

Someone else built that package?  (I admit I don't really understand the 
complex system of branches used by Fedora).  In fedora-development repo 
I see the correct list of provides for that package:

rjones at oirase:~$ repoquery --provides ocaml-lablgl
ocaml(Gl) = cd8e921dfaef68b9f7fdf19f19093d5e
ocaml(GlArray) = 12a887a1d8b0554c82b2b7ec6ab8b9c6
ocaml(GlClear) = 8bb155ee2a37256be58e2a0157b8bafe
ocaml(GlDraw) = 06a8bccb576f39b6fc4dd55c04423355

(ie. no ocaml(Arg), etc. which are provided by the base ocaml-runtime 

So what can I do to fix this?  Temporarily add Conflicts?  Can I tell 
yum to definitely choose one package over another?
