Long Story, but Recompiling PHP on this box is more trouble than its
There don't seem to be any PHP RPMs with Interbase support compiled in
for Fedora Core 4 so that leaves me with the ODBC route.

Plus the Database I need to connect to is likely to change to Oracle or
MS-SQL in the near future, and I'd rather write the code so it'll work
with them all. If and when it happens.
