It's intentional that it's in the public include.  It's not the cleanest

3.2.1 was branched off of 3.2.0.  The 4.0.0 code seperately included the
fixes that it needed (which wasn't all of them).

climm built with libotr 4?  A quick look at their source code says that
can't be true.  (Their OtrlMessageAppOps structure is the old one, for
example.)  Can you check your build?
