Ruby install conflict and ruby-dbi-all on debian 3.1

Hi there,

I am running debian 3.1(sarge, I think).
I need to be able to connect to mysql, Postgres & Oracle.
I can connect to postgres & Mysql but Oracle (to a remote host) is
proving a pain.

Following problems and looking on forums I have done the following ruby

apt-get install ruby ruby1.8 ruby1.8-examples libyaml-ruby1.8

libdbm-ruby1.8 libopenssl-ruby1.8
liberb-ruby1.8 libsyslog-ruby1.8 libtest-unit-ruby1.8
ruby1.8-dev libruby1.8 libiconv-ruby1.8

installed rubygems

apt-get install libdbd-pg-ruby

apt-get install libdbd-mysql-ruby

This said it could not find sqlite library !
So I did:
ruby setup.rb config --with=dbi,dbd_oracle

However, there appers to a conflict:

ls -l /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/DBD
total 8
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2006-01-05 16:15 Mysql
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2006-01-05 16:15 Pg

ls -l /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/DBD
total 4
drwxr-sr-x 2 root staff 4096 2006-01-05 17:34 Oracle

Why are they in different places ?
I am assuming this is my problem.

I have tried commands like:
ruby setup.rb config --with=dbi,dbd_oracle
but these do not appear to have worked.

Any help appreciated.
