Actually I was hoping for some feedback from people effectively using
Oracle[XE] on FreeBSD. Anyone ?

The full blown Oracle RDBMS server has a standalone Java installer
(the Oracle Universal Installer) and the Oracle DBA's are accustomed
deploying it this way.
On the other hand the Oracle installation tutorial in the FreeBSD
ports could use some "freshening up" for newer versions. I will look
into installing Oracle RDBMS after finishing up the OracleXE port(s).
