Be more specific, what changes?

Dynamic linking and Static linking both have there pros and cons. Most
seem to prefer dynamic linking, that is why it is the default in
ibconnection.pp. Only problem at the moment in FPC is, with dynamic
linking it is looking for an unversioned library instead of
libfbclient.so.2 (the latest major version of Firebird DB). Making
that simple change means apps that are dynamically linked can be just
as easily deployed as apps with static linking.
