in thread What are DBD::Oracle's dependencies (on Linux)?

The oracle C libraries are only visible as part of the "advanced" oracle install options. Which version of Oracle you need depends on what flavor of linux you are running and what version of oracle your server is.

    Also, see my comments further below.

    You don't need to install the server (which, in most cases, is the same thing as the database). But you do need to install the Oracle client and the C libraries in order to build a working DBD::Oracle.

    Please tell us which version of Oracle you are trying to use and what version of Linux. I have successfully built DBD::Oracle on RedHat Enterprise 3.0 AS (very similar to RHL 9.0) using the Oracle 9.2 client.

    YMMV.
