Actually, right now, there is only one I know about (not counting php5
which hits a different problem, trivial to both fix and work around).
Unfortunately this package is libreoffice so that I'm afraid I wouldn't
get away with simply breaking it and calling it Someone Else's Problem.
Well, if you don't want to change any depending
packages, then you
need to provide a fbembed.pc and an libfbembed.so file (the latter
can be symlinked to libfbclient.so).
That might work in general. However, as I found yesterday, even after
fixing libreoffice's configure.ac, one of its unit tests fails so this
trick wouldn't help either and working around the issue in firebird
packages is out of question even as a short term workaround.
Thanks for your help anyway.
