Uhm, no, that is what @ignore_inst is designed for. But I would not
advise to play with it: AFAIK no port uses this feature, so I'm not sure
if it is supported. I have to admit that I did not try whether it even
works, but by looking at the code it should.
Anyway, teaching ocamlfind to leave the installed files alone seems like
the preferred solution to me...
