download the source code from , for example 5.3.x
and the related firebird/interbase code is under ext/interbase/
and if you use pdo

you can help with testing and fixing the bugs from pdo_firebird and interbase
later i guess if there are too many differences with interabase
extension we can do
a fork and create the firebird clean extension

there are some people who fix some bugs , they are on php internals

no , only the source from exists

it might be possible to compile with c++ builder but
php .net requires/forces only visual studio on win or the g++ on linux
but my guess is that you can compile it with mingw too or g++ on cygwin
that would be more interesting (the mingw path of compiling)
