DBD-Oracle-1.19 Make Test Work?

Has4x4 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

It's been a long hard fight to get DBD::Oracle 1.19 installed. We're using HP UX 11i V1 on a N4000 machine Perl is 5.8.8 with DBI 1.50 from HP (set up with gcc also) gcc is 4.2 Oracle version is 10g. We have successfully gotten the "perl Makefile.PL -l" to work successfully and the resulting "make" thanks to some heavy help.. But there seems no way to get the 'make test' to even start to run. Can I assume that CSPAN's 'make test' for DBD::Oracle is broken and will not run???? Has anyone actually installed DBD:: Oracle 1.19???? On HP UX 11i V1???? We can't spend much more time on this effort and may have to drop this whole DBI and DBD method. The older version used to work nicely and we miss them but they are way out of date. Thank You

    What's the error message you're getting?

    Have you set the appropriate variables to allow the test suite to connect to a database to actually perform the tests?

    It would be useful to see what steps you'd already taken, as they sound as if they're non-standard.

    Is Oracle installed on this machine? Or at least the client? Where are the libraries installed? Are they in your LD_LIBRARY_PATH? Which shell are you running the commands from?

    What timezone are you in?
