I think it would be best to ask on firebird-devel mailing list.

I suspect they have produced a patch for that.

As soon as the packages w/ proper fix are available I can sponsor
their upload to the official Debian archive.  I consider it almost
a "Release Critical" bug, which is bad, because Sarge might be
released (and frozen before that - which means: harder updates!) in
not too distant feature.
