Clean the port and try again, and you should see the message that says that you need to download these distfiles manually. Unfortunately Oracle's web site does not let you download these files without first logging in.

Celso sent this response by email:

I installed instantclient basic and instantclient sdk, in the folder /opt/oracle/instantclient_10_2. Now how do I tell the install command to look in that folder?

That's not how it works. You don't manually install the instantclient. You just manually download the specific distfiles MacPorts wants, and put them in the place where MacPorts looks for them. Then you "sudo port install oracle-instantclient" as usual.

Did you "sudo port clean oracle-instantclient" and "sudo port install oracle-instantclient" as suggested above? If so, you should have seen a message like this one:

$ sudo port install oracle-instantclient
--->  Computing dependencies for oracle-instantclient
--->  Fetching oracle-instantclient
Warning: MacPorts may not be able to download the necessary distfiles for oracle-instantclient.
Warning: If you get a checksum error, please visit
Warning: and download these files manually and place them in /opt/local/var/macports/distfiles/oracle-instantclient

The message tells you what files to download, where to get them from, and where on your hard drive to put them.
