If you have a working installation agains MySQL then it should be 'easy' 
  to switch to Oracle.
The only difference is the use of DBD::Oracle instead of DBD::MySQL, so 
theoretically installing DBD::Oracle should do the trick. Ofcourse 
you'll need to adapt RT_SiteConfig.pm to reflect this change and you 
would need to make sure that you can connect using DBD::Oracle to your 
Oracle instance.
The problem you'll face will be if there is a binary DBD::Oracle 
available for you ActivePerl version.

Good luck,
