The port of oscommerce to Firebird has had a few downloads and James is
playing with putting product on it.

I'm working in TikiPro currently myself, and that has a clean installer
for Firebird 1.5.

Most of the PHP stuff is relatively painless to port - even if, like
oscommerce, it uses 'raw' mysql php calls, but getting Firebird as an
option PHPNuke or PHPbb could be useful - just not to me ;)

ibWebAdmin is being used more and more to manage Firebird on my sites,
so no need for other packages.
