They have never been made available as a tarball or a zipfile. You need
to pull them off with CVS. (They have been available in the past, but
no-one got it together for the final release - no reason in particular -
it just got forgotten.) The module name is 'interbase', btw.

Did you really mean JBuilder 6 ??? I guess trying to get that to compile
firebird will certainly take up plenty of your newly found spare time.

Personally, I'd dust off MSVC6. You'll get that 'real developer' feeling
a lot quicker.
