Well, I tried to install Instant Client on a Linux machine with no Oracle software at all and I noticed it give the same message if you set ORACLE_HOME to a valid directory. It's definitely a message that comes from the Instant Client itself, not from another Oracle installation.

Unsetting ORACLE_HOME should be enough.

BTW, the OP was not talking about another Oracle installation on the same machine.
