HSODBC is still present in 11g. 11g also supports the Open Gateway interface which dg4odbc is part of.

As far as getting dg4odbc installed and working I do not have a clue but I am pretty sure it is needed for the HSODBC interface as well as the Gateway product.

There is a separate manual on the feature: OracleŽ Database Heterogeneous Connectivity Administrator's Guide 10g Release 2 (10.2) Part Number B14232-01. One possible issue on 64 bit systems is that Oracle specifies that the ODBC driver must be 32 bit.
