Linux RedHat5 & Oracle 11g client

We have applications that interface to Oracle using the standard PERL/DBI 
interface.  Since the Oracle 11g Client includes PERL/DBI we would like to take 
advantage of it.  However, our software also uses other CPAN modules which are 
not included in the Oracle PERL distribution.

Is applying other CPAN modules to the Oracle 11g client software distribution 
acceptable practice?  If so, how would we compile modules which include C-based 
source.  Apparently the Oracle PERL software is compiled with the "icc" 
compiler which we do not have.

Just wondering how others take advantage of the Oracle PERL distribution but 
also include other CPAN modules.
