just the basic starting point. That is, the .c  files have been added,
some basic methods have been implemented (open, close, begin_trans,
commit_trans, rollback_trans).

all the execute_command stuff, which includes the execution of commands
and the returning of recordsets to the clients.

it is not intended to work, I had not even compiled it myself, since I
don't have an oracle installation, so, as I say, nobody has ever
compiled it, apart from you now.

Make sure configure shows clearly that it found the ORACLE installation.
For this, you just have to define ORACLE_HOME and add --with-oracle=yes
to ligda's configure.

yes, it should at least install, if it compiles.
