firebird3.0 fails to cross build from source, because configure.ac has a
lot of issues. It confuses "build" and "host" and uses AC_RUN_IFELSE in
a number of places. The attached patch addresses and explains these
issues in detail.
debian/rules also confuses build and host when determining whether to
pass --enable-raw-devices. It should be querying DEB_HOST_ARCH_OS here.
After fixing these issues, a cross build of firebird3.0 gets a lot
further and finally fails executing "lockfile". That's a program from
procmail, which is (implicitly) marked Multi-Arch: no. Presumably
procmail needs to become Multi-Arch: foreign or firebird3.0 needs to
stop using procmail for file locking.
Please consider applying the attached patch nonetheless.
