Use the ports, Luke:

    % cd /usr/ports/databases/jdbc-oracle816
    % make pretty-print-run-depends-list 
    This port requires package(s) "compat3x-i386-4.4.20020925 javavmwrapper-1.4 
jdk-1.1.8" to run.

Looks to me like you don't need X windows on that machine.  However,
you do need an old version of Java.
