Hi Jukka,

I attempted to replicate this by:

0. running `gdalinfo --formtats |grep oracle` (nothing reported)
1. installing gdal-oracle package (using apt)
2. running `gdalinfo --formtats |grep oracle` again, in the same shell 
session, with result:

    C:\>gdalinfo --formats |grep -i oracle
      GeoRaster (rw+): Oracle Spatial GeoRaster

Investigation of the file system revealed that the oci plugin is at 
"%osgeo4w_root%\bin\gdalplugins\1.8\ogr_OCI.dll" instead of the 
"%osgeo4w_root%\bin\gdalplugins" you report.

My PATH does not contain either of these plugin directories and 
GDAL_DRIVER_PATH is not set. I have the following gdal packages installed:

gdal                1.8.1-1
gdal-oracle         1.8.0-1
gdal-python         1.8.0-2
gdal15dll           1.5.4-1

I repeated the test sequence in a newly installed osgeo4w environment, 
though same machine, and got the same results. The host system is 
Win7-Pro, 64bit.
