Now that really puzzles me. I would imagine you would only need to do it a couple of times. Once for each major release. You could even do a quick diff on each major release and find it doesn't change much. (yes, the contents of catproc etc. might change, but that isn't what you diff, just the outer process.)

I don't understand the business need to reverse engineer this. You can call dbca from a command line and have it create the scripts silently and even run them. I believe Oracle did it this way to make it easier for people installing (and less error prone, as you are finding out) I get the impression that you are in a big hurry. The irony is that if you went a little slower and did less you would achive a better result with less overall effort.
