autogen --help is in attachement

In allready firebird2 /opt isn't default targer directory, now it is
(Remco said about firebird.1.0.3)

Maybe we could build firebird2 now with follow configuration:

./autogen  \
 [--enable-super-server] \
 --prefix=/usr/lib/firebired2 \  //done allready

and get rid of /lib and /include symlinks from fb directory?

With regard
