Well, I'm sure Dariusz will tell you where to get it from (did you
search on rpmbone?) but if you decide to compile it, you need to have
php-devel package installed and then download the php source tarball for
the version you have. Unpack it and then go to


directory and run "phpize" there. It will create the "configure" script.
Now run it like this:

./configure --with-interbase=shared,/opt/firebird

it will configure the build. If you get any errors, post here and we'll
try to help. After configure is done, run "make" and it will create file.
