Hi Folks.

I'm a little bit annoyed by a boring specification in the fpc package. 
When in a program I use the TIBConnection (along witha transaction and a 
query), the compiled program looks for the local libfbclient when 
establishing the connection.
So far so good. When I install the program in another Linux box, running 
Firebird 2.1, the program complains that
"Can not load default Firebird clients ("libfbclient.so.2.5" or 
"libgds.so" or "libfbembed.so.2.5")". Looks normal as this Linux box 
uses Firebird 2.1
Is it possible to force what library should be used instead ? (as UIB does)
Having a look inside the code, in ibase60 (lines 2680 and fw) library 
names look fixed and looks like the Firebird version should be fixed 
before using it.
