I don't know if you have solved this problem yet, but I have a small example of building a static C lib and statically linking with OCaml using Oasis and OCamlbuild. The repository is here: https://github.com/aziem/ctypes-static-lib-ocamlbuild and I think the most relevant example for you is under the oasis-lib branch. This example uses ocamlbuild to do most of the work rather than trying to get options set correctly in the _oasis file. So I use ocamlbuild tags and a small myocamlbuild plugin and get everything built correctly. This example uses information from various sources, including those you linked to in your first email, as well as information from the OCaml-Ctypes issue tracker. The repository is mainly for my own documentation purposes but may be of use to you.
