[osgeo4w-dev] Binary inconpatible GDAL plugin for Oracle

I am not a OSGeo4w contributor, so I don't know how things are build. But I remember that at one time, probably 4 years ago, I uploaded the Oracle plugins to GDAL ftp repository (That doesn't exist anymore) and those DLL where used by OSGeo4W, some how, without my acknowledge. That is to me a hint that indicates that the plugins are not build on the same environment as the GDAL tools are.
Anyway, here comes the symptoms:
1 - After installing GDAL latest (1.9.2) with GDAL-Oracle plugins, the OSGeo4W show an error message when it tries to run "gdalinfo --version" at the end of the shell initialization script.
2 - Running gdalinfo or ogrinfo with Oracle driver doesn't work and the errors random, sometimes an error message pops up, sometimes nothing happens, just the prompt comes back without any printing.
3 - QGIS also doesn't work when you try to load vector or raster. You might get a connection sometimes or even get a georaster to display but it crashes when loading geometries.
4 - Everything goes back to normal if I Just do that:
C:\OSGeo4W\bin\gdalplugins\1.9> copy "\Program Files (x86)\GDAL\gdalplugins\gdal_GEOR.dll" .
C:\OSGeo4W\bin\gdalplugins\1.9> copy "\Program Files (x86)\GDAL\gdalplugins\ogr_OCI.dll" .
5 - On that source folder I have GDAL installed from gdal-19-1600.core.msi and gdal-19-1600-oracle.msi. I tried with gdal-19-1500-core.msi and gdal-19-1500-core.msi and got similar problems as with the original OSGeo4W GDAL Oracle plugins.
So it seems like the problem is about VC binary incompatibility. IMHO.
But I understand you point, the problem deserves a good explanation.
One more think. I have users that got QGIS directly from QGIS website and encountered the same problem after installing and trying to use the Oracle plugins. Would that be a coincidence?
If some that knows the building/assembling and installation process in OSgeo4W could help. That would be great.
