Ok Dmitry but is it possible to build libfbembed on POSIX systems so that it would be
much like Windows, that is superserver based architecture ? If possible, how to
do it ?

Windows fbembed is superserver, so multithreaded application is ok
as long as you don't try to use the same connection from many threads
POSIX libfbembed is a classic engine, so it can't be used in
multithreaded applications.
