Ann is right. In addition you might not have semaphores compiled into
your kernel. There are a number of different semaphore API's. The one
in question that Firebird uses is System V semaphores. I'm not on a
FreeBSD box, but the man page for semget might have more information on
how to change the number of semaphores in your system.
