The support still needs access to the Oracle Instant Client library

You can get binaries here:

You'll need at least the Basic Lite and the SDK (for the headers).

If you install to a non-standard location, you will probably also need to

-D OCI_INCLUDE_DIR=<path-to-oracle-client-sdk>/sdk/include
-D OCI_LIBRARY=<path-to>/lib/libclntsh.dylib

Coincidentally, when searching for whether there are pre-built binaries as
deb packages, I came across a similar answer, that I believe you provided,
via Kyngchaos.  :-)
