    The problem is likely some lines upwards in the build failure. The output Oracle.c:2503: warning: unused variable 'Perl___notused' is just a warning and would not cause the build failure.

    Please post more of the output, there should be a line with maybe Oracle.c:1234: error: at the start.

    Note that Perl 5.14 is out of service since roughly 5 years ago. If you are starting to install modules, maybe it is a better idea to start with a more recent Perl like Strawberry Perl, which offers a 5.30 package for download.

      with strawberry perl version 5.30, DBD::Oracle gets installed like a charm.
      Glad that this error ended up having me latest version of Perl.

      Thanks corion. I am too considering to go for strawberry perl.

    Please note that i am using DWIM perl/strawberry perl version 5.14 and oracle version is 10.2.0.
