install_driver(Oracle) failed: Can't load '......./'

I'm attempting to get an existing application working on a new server.  When running CGI scripts that connect to the Oracle database I get the following error:

install_driver(Oracle) failed: Can't load '/really/long/path/auto/DBD/Oracle/' for module DBD::Oracle: No such file or directory at /really/long/path/ line 230.
 at (eval 11) line 3

I've checked and that file DOES exist.

How did you install the Oracle::DBD module on the new server?
sounds like HPUX ...
did you install the requested shared libraries ( in this case)?
or is your @INC wrong?

Yes it is HPUX.  Yes is there (where it is looking for it, so I don't think @INC is wrong).

hmm, is there any doubt with this message?

You'd think, but I've verified that the file does in fact exist.
the I only can guess that the user running the scrip does not have full read access to all directories of the path to the lib.
