Actually, I think I'll disable firebird support in libreoffice again. I
enabled it at some point in the past because I foolishly thought it's
about to replace hsqldb as the embedded DB format soon. But that has
never happened, for good reasons (one of them is that the file format is
endian-dependent). There was an attempt to update the firebird
dependency to 3.0--and to change the format to some other one supported
by that version--during this year's GSoC, but hsqldb is going to stay
for the foreseeable future, so it's better to ignore firebird.
Especially as it's only avaiable in libreoffice if experimental features
are enabled...
