There is NO *static* library such as fbclient.lib in firebird build process.
There is *import* library named fbclient.lib in \temp\win32\fbclient but it is
not what Pierre want from us.

As i understand PHP windows project insist on compiling all 3rd party
libraries by VC6 and VC9 because of some mistery CRT incompatibilites
they can't explain and failed to solve. Distributing own build of all 3rd party
libraries witn PHP itself is a huge mistake, i think. What if Firebird fixed some
(critical) error in fbclient.dll ? PHP users will wait until next release of whole

Pierre, many people in this list tried to convice you to not do what you want
to do. This is VERY BAD for PHP users ! In Firebird client API there is no places
when application freed memory allocated by fbclient and vice versa.

You promised me past year to come into fb-devel with your info\arguments\etc
but this not happens.Welcome into fb-devel and we'll try to resolve all issues together.
