Those particular files are the OCaml bindings.  They are only needed
if you intend to write a brand new program in OCaml using guestfs
(http://libguestfs.org/guestfs-ocaml.3.html).  Otherwise you can
remove them without any ill effect.

However I'm surprised that whatever spec file you are using doesn't
find and package those files into two ocaml-libguestfs* subpackages.
