Subject 100% embedded firebird on Linux
Author Geert Bevin
Hello everyone,

I've been trying out Firebird as an embedded database.

What I found strange is that apparently it needs additional files to be
installed besides libgds. Through experimentation I've trimmed it down
to the 'gds_lock_mgr' and 'gds_pipe' binaries, which are dynamically
linked against libgds. What I would like is to be able to distribute one
binary of my application that is statically linked against libgds and
that doesn't need anything else. Like this, a user could just run the
binary of my application and doesn't have to worry about installing any
required files in the correct location.

Has someone done something similar and is it possible?

Thanks for the help,

Geert Bevin
