Compiling Firebird 2.5 on the amazon ec2 linux microinstance (centos based)

I have checked out Firebird 2.5 source from svn then i have installed the gnu c++ compiler also the readline libs also the icu ones
after that i have started the compilation process (i know it's easier to install firebird from rpm but i wanted to see how fast is the free microinstance: it compiled in something of more than one hour)

yum install gcc-c++ libicu-devel readline-devel automake autoconf libtool

after configure check if the firebird server is up
netstat -tap | grep fbserver
tcp        0      0 *:gds_db                    *:*                         LISTEN      22144/fbserver
Install python and firebird driver for it and we will do some benchmarks
yum install python26-develyum install python26-devel
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/firebird/kinterbasdb-3.3.0.tar.bz2
tar -jxvf kinterbasdb-3.3.0.tar.bz2
cd kinterbasdb-3.3.0
python setup.py install
python -c "import kinterbasdb as k; print k.__version__"
(3, 3, 0, 'pre-alpha', 0)
wget http://www.firebirdsql.org/download/rabbits/pmakowski/ibench1.py
create test db


at last run the benchmark and compare with a desktop machine (at the end of the post)
python ibench1.py --db_user=sysdba --db_password=******* --db_name=/tmp/test.fdb --setup

Here are the results for a desktop machine (core 2 duo )

this is nice tutorial but not working as should
I think tar -jxvf kinterbasdb-3.3.0.tar.bz2 not zxvf
