I've replied to Lester on fb-support list, trying here to be synthetic.
I'm not sure, but it's true that PHP windows distribution will or/and
need to include a copy of fbclient.dll?
This eventual copy, will be installed in windows system directory or
only in PHP installation directory tree?
And this is more or less a firebird user support question: if there is
another copy of fbclient.dll installed elsewhere (say /Program
Files/firebird/firebird_2_1/bin) used by IBExpert, Flamerobin, or
IBO/IBX legacy application Delphi programs, is there any conflict using
local connection trough web and localhost connection trough other apps
(and FB client library)?

Trying anyway to bring a clear path to this very long thread.

P.S. @Pierre
How can I run test in Windows without VC (i.e. running "make test") but
only using PHP?
