What is the simplest way you know of to have FWTools work with these
plugins? I'm afraid I didn't quite understand your suggestion at the end
of your message. Should I start using gdal releases instead of fwtools
if I need oci and sde?

Our stable windows release located at
  provides a full complement of current plugins for ArcSDE and OCI
(along with some others like MrSID and ECW).  I have found it quite
taxing to keep up building plugins for both FWTools and our stable
releases, and with the new OSGeo4W effort, I have focused my effort on
these because they should work in OSGeo4W as well.

If you need to track GDAL trunk for a bug fix or new feature, I'm afraid
you'll have to invest some effort in building your own plugins (or
linking in what you need directly for even easier usage).
