	It worked beautifully but there is the following
dependency requiring yet another trip to the same well: I sure
hope this is it.

 Due to Oracle license restrictions, you must fetch the source 

It appears that this file installs the -basic client.

	Now, I'll go tie a horse shoe in to a square knot
without a forge in order to relieve some pent up frustration. I
don't know whether to laugh or swear.
