In fact there are one and a half more alternatives (but first
Marius must manage to get the basics working):

2a. You don't need to setup your own converter, as Win32 can do the
conversion for you, using the WideCharToMultiByte/MultiByteToWideChar
APIs. Quite an astonishing number of character sets are actually
supported in this API call, including the ISO-8859 family. And if you
prefer not to trust Win32, you can delegate charset conversion to
GNU libiconv.

4. Use ISO-8859-2 only as column character set, and WIN1252 as
connection character set. In this way, Firebird will do the
charset conversion.
