Subject Using firebird with php under OSX
Author tomhendersonflickr
I'm running OSX 10.4.11 on a powerbook (PPC) with the built in apache server, and php
4.3.11 ( Release 1), both working fine. I have the Firebird.framework installed
and the isql command line tool is working fine too.

I've been trying to follow the instructions at (How to use
Firebird with PHP) but I'm getting stuck on step 5 (run: ./configure --with-
interbase=shared,/opt/firebird). I get the error:

configure: error: libgds or libib_util not found! Check config.log for more information.

I've done a fair bit of googling and it seems that this is a common problem (and has been for
a while judging from the dates of the posts), but most of the discussion is a bit beyond me.

Is there a fix? As I understand it, I need to create an '' file. Is it possible for
someone to just send me a copy of it, of is it necessary for my system to create it?

Thanks in advance,
