Subject Firebird 2.0 RC3 on FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE
Author Jacob Alberty
I attempted building firebird 2.0 RC3 on FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE from the source
tarball and ran into several issues.

1. Examples flat out do not build I finally ended up removing
examples_cp from gen/Makefile and this got it to build
2. there is a weird semaphore error that can only be cleared up by
using ipcs to list semaphores then ipcrm -s to remove the bad semaphore
3. gmake clean fails because clean_editline contains -make -C
$(ROOT)/extern/editline clean as does clean_icu
4. gmake gives the warning find: ./firebird/examples/v5: No such file
or directory
5. Upon completing install I am still unable to connect, attempting to
run fb_inet_server directly gives /libexec/ Shared object
"" not found, required by ""

Has anyone successfully installed firebird 2.0 on a FreeBSD system?
