In looking through the configure.in file for the rlm_sql_oracle driver from src/modules/rlm_sql/drivers/rlm_sql_oracle, it would appear that it is either looking for the 8i/9i full blown client install, or a 10g/11g full install or a specific version of the InstantClient, 10.1.0.3. (This particular InstantClient release is no longer available, btw.)
Use the v2.1.x branch from http://git.freeradius.org. It has updated
Please tell us if they work, or if they don't.

I have tried doing some stuff with the configure.in file to make it work properly with my release of the InstantClient, but running autoconf against the modified configure.in file creates a configure script with syntax errors. It would appear that the original configure script is based on autoconf 2.59, whereas the installed version that I have 2.61. Would that make a difference?

If you don't want to try the v2.1.x branch, just edit the
rlm_sql_oracle/Makefile directly. There's nothing magic about it.
