If you didn't have a DBA, it would be easier to get another system running.
Since you do have a DBA, here's what you want to do:
- Have the DBA do a full install of Oracle on the Linux box, software only. He will understand what I am saying. You will not keep this installation for very long.
- With your DBA sitting next to you, install DBD::Oracle on the Linux box. It will link against the Oracle installation you did in step 1.
- Once DBD::Oracle has been built successfully, delete the Oracle installation from the Linux box.
You now have DBD::Oracle installed on a box that doesn't have Oracle on it. I've already told you to do this. Where is the confusion?

Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.
