Since I did not have any real problems with SUSE10 I thought that things
were a lot better.
Based on these comments I think we *DO* need to sort out our own
PHP/Firebird builds :(
The main problem *I* had was just making sure that the right development
tools were loaded, and then things ran fine.
CAN we do a ready built .so library, and distribute that, or do we need
to simply sort out the problems on each distribution?

Of cause getting Firebird simply included like MySQL and Posgres would
be the ideal so perhaps we need a concerted effort on that. The WINDOWS
builds have never been a problem since the binary is always included!
