first and foremost your question is not firebird-related, as with almost
all distributions that use any kind of packaging mechanisms.

a pkg install fetches and installs the current tested version of a pkg
and it's dependencies, if there are any.

Leaving the readymade pkg path you should look at the freebsd ports

Word of advice - if yoo aren't that familiar with freebsd and/or the
packaging/ports mechanisms - stay on 2.5.2_5 until 2.5.3 becomes available.
