Probably best to try building this from git instead of using RPMs, so
we can get the changes working upstream first.  Make sure to read this
page first:

I suppose that we need to link the OCaml bindings to -lgnu, which
your patch attempts:

... but the problem is that libguestfsocaml.a isn't really used for
anything.  See the comment in the same Makefile.am:

  # Build the C part into a library, so that automake handles the C
  # compilation step for us.  Note that we don't directly use this
  # library; we link with the object files that it generates.
  noinst_LIBRARIES = libguestfsocaml.a

You'll need to change all the places where
$(libguestfsocaml_a_OBJECTS) is used instead, eg something like this
untested change:

 stamp-mlguestfs: libguestfsocaml.a $(guestfs_cmm)
         $(OCAMLMKLIB) -o mlguestfs \
           $(libguestfsocaml_a_OBJECTS) guestfs.cmo \
           $(LDFLAGS) \
           $(LTLIBINTL) \
-         -L../lib/.libs -lguestfs
+         -L../lib/.libs -lguestfs \
+         -L../gnulib/lib/.libs -lgnu
 if HAVE_OCAMLOPT
         $(OCAMLMKLIB) -o mlguestfs \
           $(libguestfsocaml_a_OBJECTS) guestfs.cmx \
           $(LDFLAGS) \
           $(LTLIBINTL) \
-         -L../lib/.libs -lguestfs
+         -L../lib/.libs -lguestfs \
+         -L../gnulib/lib/.libs -lgnu
 endif
         touch $@
