> I know that there is an Oracle 7 client on FreeBSD, but I don't know about 8i. 

8i is not in the ports, but FWIW, I did get Oracle8i (for Linux) client working on 
FreeBSD last week, for some definition of 'working' - I can't access my Oracle 
server from it because the server is inside a firewall and the client is outside 
a firewall. But this is not caused by the platform on which I run the client, I had
exactly the same problem with Windows.

Mostly I followed the Oracle chapter of the handbook but I needed to do some
adjustments. I can't remember the details, though. It's been a hectic week.
