Erm, what? This should have been coordinated. There's libfbclient2.5

While it doesn't get uninstallable (firebird2.5 exists), firebird-dev now
points to 3.0, making stuff using 2.5 unbuildable.... I mean stuff expecting
libfbembed.. I'd need to backport all the FB3 stuff which went into LO 5.3...

(And even if it built, one might want to keep whatever upstream uses for file
format compatibility... Maybe I'll use the internal firebird copy or just
disable libreoffice-sdbc-firebird then...)
