Thanks for the reply Helen. Had a feeling that I had maybe misssed
something, possibly a 'switch' on installing the components.
I had started trialing FIB before IBO was recommended and one could
set a property to GDS32 or FBClient so had expected IBO to have a
similar facility (Et tu Jason?).
As I'm working with the trial I will reserve modifying the source
until I get to that stage. However, it's nice to know that I can
still follow the recommended procedure of placing the library in the
app. dir.
