Perl connect to remote oracle db without local oracle installation

I want to use Perl to connect to a remote Oracle DB
I have no oracle installation on my server (and dont plan on installing one) I am using solaris 9 on x86 server.

Is this possible?
I basically want to run some basic sql queries on the remote oracle db which I have access to using perl on my server.

DBI and DBD appear to need a local oracle installation to work....
