There is absolutely a need. If you don't you will find the new install
will break as the old server might be still be listening.

The main thing you need to look at is the process tree and kill any
running Firebird server process, and the lock manager process. I don't
have the exact names to hand, but you can check for names in the bin dir
under the install directory and make sure none of those binaries are

After that you can delete the old install manually. To be really clean you
might want to look for symlinks in /usr/lib and /usr/include.

You should probably also review (x)inetd and or the run level scripts if
you installed Super Server.
