Issues with compiling DBD::Oracle on RHEL 5

Hello,

I have Oracle 11GR2 server installed on RHEL 5. The make initialize
generates error and it needs DBD::Oracle. I tried to install DBD::Oracle but
got the following error…

*"Unable to locate an oracle.mk, proc.mk or other suitable .mk

  •    file in your Oracle installation.  *
    
    
    
      The oracle.mk (or demo_rdbms.mk) file is part of the Oracle
    
      RDBMS product. The proc.mk (or demo_proc.mk) file is part of
    
      the Oracle Pro*C product.  You need to build DBD::Oracle on a
    
      system which has one of these Oracle components installed.
    
      (Other *.mk files such as the env_*.mk files will not work.)
    
      Alternatively you can use Oracle Instant Client.
    
    
    
      In the unlikely event that a suitable *.mk file is installed
    
      somewhere non-standard you can specify where it is using the -m
    

option:

            perl Makefile.PL -m /path/to/your.mk"

The link below asks to install Oracle Instant Client . Any ideas?

The README file packaged with DBD::Oracle is quite good, it explains
which oracle packages you need installed.
