Problems (and solution) compiling DBD::Oracle with Oracle 10.2.0 on Linux

Trying to compile DBD::Oracle I run into trouble because the Makefile
kept failing to find the libraries. I figured out after a while that the
problem was that somehow in the library path that he was using a 'lib32'
kept being used instead of 'lib'.

Can't see where that 'lib32' came from, probably is adding the
architecture of the syste to the lib name somewhere.

To quickly solve the problem I simply created a couple of symlinks named
'lib32' pointing to 'lib', one for $ORA_HOME/lib and one for
$ORA_HOME/rdbms/lib

This made him happy.
