The core OCaml system: compilers, runtime system, base libraries
That does sound problematic, but without the code it is hard to tell what is the issue. Typically, compiling a 6kLoc file like https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/blob/trunk/typing/typecore.ml takes 0.8 s on my machine.
Fragment-based code distribution!
A long time ago I experimented with fragment-based code distribution. The idea is that the unit of distribution should be individual functions and not packages. The Unison language does this in practice.

CommonMark parser and renderer for OCaml
omd pulls quite a lot of things, probably more than it should, due to its use of ppx_expect that pulls a lot of the Jane Street ecosystem (which is just fine if you are otherwise using core, but could feel bloated otherwise); now that it exists, cmarkit is probably a better choice for Markdown parsing. (It is more lightweight dependency-wise and probably better designed.)
