FreeBSD and firebird20-client

Firebird20-client will not compile and you cannot install php5-extensions with firebird support, because it will install firebird-client.

My solution :

Make a user on your freebsd box member of the wheel group.

chmod g+w /usr/ports/databases/firebird20-client

su - user (member of wheel)

cd /usr/ports/databases/firebird20-client



cd /usr/ports/databases/firebird20-client

make install

Then go on with the install of php5-extension

pew, this took me a while to figure out.
