I don't know of a good way of doing it.
I think it's preferable to suffer some immediate pain (with ui_msg
instructions to tell people to uninstall the old instantclient) in
order to get it fixed, though.
You could also change where things get installed so that the platform-
specific instantclients don't conflict with the current port, but
that's probably not a great solution.
