pdo_firebird is not being developed since nobody can see the advantages
of it since you have to install php_interbase to get the rest of the
Firebird functions ;)

You SHOULD be able to access the php_interbase functions from php_cgi
and personally I use ADOdb to cross link between databases in PHP.
