You'll find an answer in the manpages mentioned earlier.

There is no Oracle support yet, because I couldn't test it when I wrote
radsqlrelay. As Perl DBI includes an Oracle driver, it should be trivial
to add. It's just a 2 lines patch in script/radsqlrelay.

radsqlrelay was added in version 1.1.0 and since then it was never
changed. (you can check the CVS log if you want)
