Where, how do I build the oracle driver?

What apr-util version do you have?  1.3.x includes the Oracle
driver; 1.2.x doesn't.

To answer your question directly, if your apr-util is built
to load drivers dynamically, then yes, it should be (or .dll).  But I don't know what the
situation is on windows.  Have you tried building it
yourself (either the driver, or the whole of apr-util)?

You might also be able to use the ODBC driver as an alternative.
