I've also tried to access Oracle from Haskell a few months ago. I could 
connect from Takusen, HSQL/Oracle, but I had no success getting ODBC to 
run with the Oracle Instant Client, and thus could not use HDBC. 
Eventually I was told to use the latest version of the Instant Client 
(i.e. 11), but didn't try.
