Pierre - why do you need to build them at all?
They come ready packaged with Firebird which is what we all use. It would NOT
make sense to distribute just the client with PHP, as has happened in the
past. Installing the client from a Firebird distribution will set the right
registry keys and the like. Which is why the GDS32.dll supplied with PHP is
simply never used.
