Compiling #firebird 2.5 Release Candidate on #ubuntu #karmic

seems that Firebird 2.5 final is on the way and i wanted to test it on my Karmic machine
There is Branch  B2_5_Release for this release so I used this way

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@firebird.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/firebird co -r B2_5_Release firebird2



./autogen.sh --prefix=/opt/firebird2.5.x --enable-superserver
make 
sudo make install 

and that is all

Another alternative is to use the Debian git tree for 2.5
apt-get build-dep firebird2.1
git clone git://git.debian.org/pkg-firebird/2.5.git
cd 2.5
./autogen.sh --prefix=/opt/firebird2.5.x --enable-superserver --with-system-icu --with-system-editline
make
make install
