Borland C++ did not use the same compiler as the current C++ Builder.
That compiler is more than a decade old and I don't know any other
decade-old compilers that are able to build the current Firebird on
Windows. The current (2007) C++ Builder compiler *might* be able to
build Firebird but apparently there's no point in trying because
Firebird already supports the platform official compiler (Microsoft's)
and an open source one (gcc on MinGW) on Windows.
