Maybe some ~/.opam/opam.el package would indeed be useful.  On a
related note, I have the following added to 'tuareg-mode-hook so that
the compilation (C-cC-c) uses the currently selected OPAM compiler.

    (defadvice compile (before compile-opam activate)
      "Run opam to update environment variables"
      (set (make-local-variable 'compilation-environment)
	     (ignore-errors (call-process "opam" nil t nil "config" "-env"))
	     (goto-line 1)
	     (while (re-search-forward "; *export.*$" nil t)
	       (replace-match "" nil nil))
	     (split-string (buffer-substring 1 (point-max)))
