Could you elaborate on this? I tried quickly with php5-dev and got
stuck. I've probably gone about this all wrong, but I couldn't find any
docs about build php packages except for PEAR stuff, which is different,

sudo cp -r /home/hendry/php5source/php5-5.0.5/ext/oci8/ /usr/include/php5/ext/

frodo$ ls /usr/include/php5/ext/
dom  iconv  libxml  mbstring  oci8  session  standard  xml
frodo$ cd /usr/include/php5/ext/oci8/
frodo$ sudo php
php          php5         php5-cgi     php-cgi      php-config   php-config4  php-config5  phpize       phpize4      phpize5
frodo$ sudo phpize
Configuring for:
PHP Api Version:         20031224
Zend Module Api No:      20041030
Zend Extension Api No:   220040412

Added: --with-oci8-instant-client=/home/hendry/oracle/instantclient_10_2

Urm, what now?

I want to build/generate a php5-oci8 Debian package.

Best wishes,
