Well actually the easiest thing is to untar it in 
.../lib/python/Products under your Zope home.

If you don't do that, it means

ln -s $ZOPE_HOME/lib/python/Products/DCOracle2 $PATH_TO_DCOracle2

or if you want to use the old name, make the link in lib/python/Products 
named ZOracleDA.

Those build instructions are kind of old, they were aimed at people 
converting from the OCI 7 version of DCOracle.
