So, even though php was originally compiled to use 8i, I need to
recompile it to work with 9i?

I need oracle 9i client libraries, then?

I'm not the dba on this project, and not overly familiar with Oracle
(why should I be, when mysql is so great), but I need to be able to at
least speak (pseudo-)intelligently with him.

Oracle client itself, not the client libraries.  You'll almost certainly
need to recompile PHP, and thusly Apache if it's not a DSO.
