This is part of the Firebird install, but your current configuration is not
finding it.
On checking my Linux installs, I have found that there is a firebird-devel
package that has all of the 'other' bits to compile firebird, so this is
probably the case with OSX. On Mandriva all of the stuff I need is supplied
ready compiled, so I've not had to 'build' anything for a while.
