There's probably a way. You'll have to make changes in the IBX source
code. First step, instead of pointing to gds32.dll, point it to
fbclient.dll. Then you might want to get familiar with whatever new
external declarations that fbclient.dll might have and probably follow
the progress thereafter with the new versions of Firebird.
