I haven't seen that with CentOS. I installed Firebird from RPM and the
64-bit client libraries installed and worked.

I finally got a moment to try this. PHP built without any problems.
The only problem I had was when I tried to upgrade my existing php using
the newly-compiled RPM files. rpm reported that I had a missing
dependency ( (64). I found both 32 and 64-bit versions
of the client library where I expected to find them (/usr/lib and
/usr/lib64) so I overrode it using --nodeps on the rpm -U command-line,
and the new packages installed without further complaint. Running
phpinfo() shows that the new php is installed and that it sees the
correct version of the firebird client libraries.
