OK, so you have already found the answer to the first question and the
solution to your current problem.

Regarding this second question I think a better way might be to install
DBD::Oracle on the machine where the Perl script runs and us DBI to
connect to the database.

It need more involved setup than your current system but might have other
advantages at least in the portability department.
