I just updated a box running solaris 8 with an old apache + oracle
setup to solaris 10.  I had to use the following two commands to get
some of the final oracle bits in place:

svccfg -s svc:/network/cswapache2:default setenv ORACLE_SID \*
svccfg -s svc:/network/cswapache2:default setenv ORACLE_HOME /homes/oracle/product/

The ORACLE_SID bit was important in my environment, but I'm not sure
if it's globally required or not.  Oracle is a black box to me that
our 'seer' (dba) deals with.
