Did you search?
Which version of perl do you have?
Where did you install the binaries from?
Its a binary compatibility problem. Perl-5.8.x has broken compatibility a couple of times, and whomever created your DBI/Oracle binaries (ppd), did so with a perl which is not compatible with yours.
Offhand, compatibility was broken in 5.8.1, 5.8.7.
The solution is to reinstall a DBI and DBD::Oracle compatible with your version of perl, or upgrade your perl.
update: It appears this incompatibility are due to ActiveState's modifications (ActivePerl build 816).
