	Do I need to load these as modules, too?  Or do they get dynamically
	associated from the library when the DBDriver directive calls for them?
	Or do they get statically linked into when included in the
	package build?

	They're not present in my lib directory or any other subordinate
	to the server root.  Platform that I'm concerned about is Solaris 10,
	so there's no packager involved (a colleague built the entire package
	several years ago).  Guess I have to rebuild the package w/
	--with-SOMETHING for the oracle or perhaps odbc drivers.

	Your guess is as good as mine on that.  It was simply copied verbatim
	from the configuration example at

	as a starting point for developing a configuration.
