The problem is the usage of some OCaml API available since OCaml 4.00,
thus not available in OCaml 3.12 which is in the Ubuntu version you are

This has been fixed upstream, with the commit
in the stable-1.28 branch.

You have two option:
a) compile libguestfs 1.28.5 (which includes the above patch) or greater
b) apply yourself the patch to your 1.28.1 sources

Unless you really need libguestfs 1.28.1 and not any later version,
I recommend the solution (a); currently libguestfs 1.28.9 is the latest
stable version.
