No DBD::Oracle module for ActivePerl

I've installed a fresh ActiveState Perl

Now I can't install the module DBD::Oracle via ppm because it isn't available for Perl

Where can I get a module version of DBD::Oracle for Perl

DBD-Oracle will not build unless it can find the Oracle libraries during compile. Oracle licensing effectively blocks subsequent distribution of the module.

We are attempting to make an OracleInstantClient version of DBD-Oracle available for 5.8 and 5.10 through PPM, but it is not ready for release yet.

In the meantime, the only way to get DBD-Oracle is to compile it locally from CPAN sources.
