There is a port of the Oracle instant client which runs under Linux
emulation in /usr/ports/databases/linux-oracle-instantclient-<basic,sdk,sqlplus>
This appears to use the 10.2.0.3 Oracle Linux instant client.
I used them some time ago to query an Oracle 10g server, but I didn't test
There are also what appear to be older native clients from the Oracle 7 and 8
days, including an Oracle ODBC client.
A search of the freebsd-databases mailing list might turn up something.
I've been peeking at Talend's Open Studio which appears to be a very powerful
tool for working with databases, including Oracle. This may be trying to
shoot a mouse with a 155mm self-propelled gun, however. Talend is open source
and there are Linux binaries which may run under FreeBSD Linux emulation.
