Long standing problem. When Inprise released the InterBase sources, they didn't release either the doc set sources or the test system. InterBase/Firebird was already a very large product and creating an open source doc set was daunting. Helen Borrie wrote a very complete book for APress, which has been updated and is available on-line, but not free. There's a project to translate the Russian book to English.

Good luck,
