More info. Deinstalled everything and installed it again using:

sudo pkg install firebird-server-2.5.2_1

I noted the file /usr/local/etc/firebird/fbintl.conf contains info about
character sets.

This file has the lines:

<intl_module fbintl>
filename $(this)/intl
icu_versions default

Where the variable "$(this)" is pointing?. I have the fbintl in the
directory /usr/local/libexec/firebird/intl owned by "root". Is this
correct?, I've tested changing it to firebird:firebird, but the errror
still persists.

BTW, I can connect to databases without problems. The only thing I can't
do is restore this database.
