but mainly in:

tells you were files should be=2E

The firebird configure script "lies" about options it has for the
location of files try:

=2E/configure --help

after you have run =2E/autogen=2Esh

I tried to use it when building my version but the settings don't seem to
have any effect=2E Probably because interbase historically lived in /opt=2E=
guess upstream should want to have this fixed too=2E

I don't know how to change build systems myself yet, so I can't give any
