Leave off interbase and you will have the same problem :(
This is currently being discussed on the PHP internals list (or has
been) and is to do with the fact that PHP needs to find the 64bit
libraries - the 32bit are incompatible ;)

From that list

As of the 10th this has yet to be fixed, but seems more to do with the
build tools themselves still not having been fully converted to 64bit
rather than PHP (or Firebird).

I'm running Firebird on the AMD64 box, and leaving Apache/PHP on the
original W2k server, which has improved response times somewhat, but
like you I'd like to be able to get PHP running there as well. I think
its still "Watch this space".
