I did not see an answer on php-install. I have also tried oci8,
but I get the error mentioned at the bottom of my post. I have
the ORA_HOME set, both on the shell level and the makefile level.
I look under the ORA_HOME root with 'find ORA_HOME -name oci.h
-print', and I get nothing. When I look for all headers, '*.h',
I get none of the ones missing for php oci8 or oracle options.
Thanks for the quote below, I will then want to look more to
the oci8 calls then. Unfortunately, neither oci8 or oracle php
option let me compile, due to the respective missing header files.

I see the answer has already been given on php-install.

A suggestion which hasn't been made is to use PHP's new oci8
interface in preference to the old one called "oracle" whenever

To quote from a note on Oracle's PHP forum (see
http://forums.oracle.com/forums/forum.jsp?forum=178 )

   "There are several reasons why I'd want to use PHP's OCI8 instead of
   ora_ calls: better Oracle behavior, performance and support, ability
   to use LOBs, and perhaps OCI8 is more widely used with better PHP
   support and examples."
