found it in ibase60dyn.pp --> ibase60.inc
before connecting to the DB:
compile on one system (OpenSuse x86_64), copy to the target system 
(Ubuntu x86_64)
target systemp library /usr/lib/libfbclient.so.2 copied in current 
directory as libfbclient.so
then run and:
An unhandled exception occurred at $00000000004B544B :
EInOutError : Can not load Firebird client library "libfbclient.so". 
Check your installation.
