Rather than backporting, it's probably about 10 billion times less
intrusive to install php4-dev, cp "ext/oci8/" from the 4.4.0 source to
another directory somewhere, "cd oci8 && phpize4", then configure with
the line below:

That will produce an extension built against Sarge's php4, which means
you can keep running official packages and not forgo security support on
your work systems.

To each their own, however.
