Install Perl module DBD::Oracle on Intel macs.

In Leopard the first step won't work because the Perl binary only contains the Intel code. When you install ActivePerl 5.8.x, which is a Universal binary, you can replace the first step by

sudo lipo -thin ppc -output /usr/local/ActivePerl-5.8/bin/perl.ppc /usr/local/ActivePerl-5.8/bin/perl

and all remaining steps are exactly the same after you append /usr/local/ActivePerl-5.8/bin to $PATH!

/usr/bin/perl is still universal, but the architecture name is changed now. It should be

sudo lipo -thin ppc7400 -output /usr/bin/perl.ppc /usr/bin/perl
