Thanks for your help getting this resolved.

FWIW, I just merged a change to the originally reported "Warning:
ocilogon() [function.ocilogon]: OCIEnvNlsCreate() failed."  message.
On Mac OS X this now mentions DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH instead of LD_LIBRARY_PATH:

This fix is incorporated into OCI8 1.3.5 downloadable from  It will be available with PHP 5.3
(whenever that comes out).  Users of older versions of PHP including
PHP 5.2 are encouraged to upgrade OCI8 using PECL.
