Dear Colleagues,

The databases/php5-oci8 port exists no more, and databases/php52-oci8
is marked as vulnerable.

According to

./configure --with-oci8=/usr/local/oracle8-client/
checking Oracle ORACLE_HOME install directory...  /usr/local/oracle8-client/
checking ORACLE_HOME library validity... lib
checking Oracle version... 8.1
configure: error: Oracle client libraries < 9.2 are not supported

there is very little hope. Should I migrate the intranet sites to
Linux/Solaris or what?  Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Do you perhaps know of some broker I could install to the Oracle
servers to continue running PHP+Oracle client on FreeBSD?

Does anyone run Oracle client on FreeBSD? What is your view of the
