I'm almost 100% sure that it is not possible. You have to either
re-prepare your statement each time your condition changes or prepare
all possible combinations on the beginning and use appropriate when
needed. However ask in Firebird-Support and try it yourself, maybe
there's very little chance that Firebird supports this.
