Neither of these should be required in FB 1.0 RC, as it now contains
a built-in fallback mapping gds_db to port 3050 when the services line
is not present. I suggested that change in March, and fortunately it
made it into FB 1.0! OpenSource is great...
I needed it because it also allows zero-installation client apps
(C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\services is not writeable for normal
NT users, so even with an installer it is difficult to adjust -
restart needed etc.).
