When you're trying to build an extension, it's best to paste exactly what
error you're getting during the build into your message.  Then tell us
what your configuration is and what you've already tried.

It's possible that you have everything that you need but that the compiler
can't find the libraries that it needs.  For example, I think that the
build assumes that your ORACLE_HOME environment variable has been set
properly.  Without more details, I can't really tell what you might be
missing or what else could be wrong.
