Fails to build for me with jbuilder: command not found:

==> Starting build()...
/tmp/makepkg/yay/ocaml-base-git/PKGBUILD: line 24: jbuilder: command not found
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Can you please add =${pkgver} to the provides entry?

For example, there is the package ocaml-ppx_here that depends on ocaml-base>=0.16.0. But `ocaml-base' in the Arch Linux repository currently is at version 0.15.1, so that cannot fulfill the dependency.

Since ocaml-base-git is at version 0.2.x it can fulfill the dependency, but only if the provides entry has the version appended pacman will treat it as fulfilling the versioned dependency.

Regards and thanks for maintaining!

This package does not build in a clean chroot; it should have Git in its makedpends. I also don’t know what package is supposed to provide jbuilder.
