From the compiler distribution directory, going to


and running

  make one DIR=tests/tools-toplevel

I observe various output (actually in the run I made I can see this failure
line as well). The test that fails in my case is find-artifacts/, so there
is a log directory


In particular there is a file


which ends with

Debugger [version 4.10.0+dev0-2019-04-23] environment error:
 The files /usr/local/lib/ocaml/stdlib.cmi
 make inconsistent assumptions over interface Stdlib

This seems to be a problem where the testsuite environment is not
sufficiently isolated from the outside world, and another OCaml install
somewhere breaks things.
