Well, the steps I folow is install php5-dev (so I get php build tools like
phpize) and download the sources for the php version in use. Than folow
build process. Example:

# cd /home/someuser/phpsources/ext/interbase
# phpize
# ./configure --with-interbase=shared,/opt/firebird
# make
# cp modules/ /usr/lib/php5

You must edit php.ini adding:

extension =;

and last, restart apache.
