There are 2 bugs in check oracle: on Solaris the /usr/bin/awk behaves
different than on Linux. But Solaris has /usr/xpg4/bin/awk and nawk that
behaves like the Linux one.
The second bug: Unfortunately the syntax of joins did change: Oracle 8.X
only knows the (+) operator while with Oracle 9 the "LEFT OUTER JOIN"
Syntax was established. As far as i can see the outer join operator is
still supported in Oracle 10g.
Below a patch that should fix these issues.
