Yesterday, with some help from David James, I managed to install the 
ROracle package. OS X 10.2.3.

The server is Oracle 8i running on a Sun Solaris box.
The client has Oracle 9i (files only, no database created, no Oracle 
processes running).

In a single test with a very simple query, it works.

>  version
platform powerpc-apple-darwin6.3
arch     powerpc
os       darwin6.3
system   powerpc, darwin6.3
major    1
minor    6.2
year     2003
month    01
day      10
language R

This version of R was installed from Jan's gifi, not from CRAN source code.

There were a couple of strange things having to do with the Oracle 
distribution that I had to work around.
