That's the message I was trying to find. I knew I'd seen Ryan answer  
this but I must have deleted my copy.

I have just installed both oracle-instantclient and php5-oracle  
without issue other then having to download manually which the port  
for oracle-instantclient explains.

Mine was an install and not an upgrade.

Mac OS X 10.5.8 Intel Core 2
