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 co -r B2_5_Release firebird2

./ --prefix=/opt/firebird2.5.x --enable-superserver
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://
cd 2.5
./ --prefix=/opt/firebird2.5.x --enable-superserver --with-system-icu --with-system-editline
make install
