I've never seen the point of ODBC on Unix....but anyway, it's been part of the Oracle client (libsqora.so) on Linux x86 from 10.1.0.x, although you'd be best using the latest version (11.2.0.1). You'll need to setup the ODBC driver manager first; see unixodbc.org.

If you have Metalink access then have a look at Note 363686.1 for a detailed HOWTO on Solaris; it'll be similar on Linux.
