The idela way (from my POV) is to migrate to Build-Depending on
firebird1.5-dev or firebird2.0-dev, depending on which version of
Firebird client one needs to link. Also, -lgds must be replaced with
-lfbclient1 or -lfbclient2 respectively. libgds is phased out.
Another way is for firebird1.5-dev to provide firebird2-dev along with
the old compatibility symlink, but I prefer the one above, because it
is more clear what you bould-depend on and what you link with.
Bear in mind firebird2 is actually 1.5, thus equal in functionality to
firebird1.5. Don't mix firebird2 (1.5) with firebird2.0 (2.0).

If you prefer the second way, I can upload tomorrow or the day after.
