I've not tried yet. Note that you need a working firebird server
running in order to build Firebird. (I've not investigated why.)
The two possibilities here are to run it on another box on your
network that has an operating system for which binaries are available,
or to try to install the Linux binary on a NetBSD system with the
Linux emulation packages installed. For all I know, you can just
pkg_add all the Linux stuff and rpm, and rpm -i the thing.

Cool! Let me know how it works out.
