Building DBD::Oracle

I spent a lot of time trying to install DBD::Oracle on a 64-bit AMD Sempron computer. Oracle has an "instant client" package downloadable from their web site, but it seems DBD::Oracle is not quite ready to be used with DBD::Oracle. I got all sorts of compile errors, mainly from Makefile.PL. The documentation I have found was sparse, but at the end I was able to build it using the following steps:

I hope I did not forget anything. The strange thing is that altough the problems with building DBD::Oracle against the Instant client are known, there has been no release of DBD::Oracle for a year or so. Is DBD::Oracle an orphaned project?
