Looks like time to get the development stuff you need installed. The log
file says:

Found header files in rdbms/demo.

I can't find the header files I need in your Oracle installation.
You probably need to install some more Oracle components.
I'll keep going, but the compile will probably fail.
See README.clients for more information.

It also says:

*** If you have problems...
read all the log printed above, and the README and files.
(Of course, you have read README by now anyway, haven't you?)

So, which part of that is too hard to understand? You're running on ancient
Solaris (2.6 - not supported), and you have a fairly old version of Oracle
client -- did you check whether it is supported.

And DBD does not mean DBD::Oracle - there are lots of DBD::DBMS drivers.
