Reporter, the code in that tarball is over five weeks old.  Please try compiling
from a current CVS snapshot and update this bug.  Build problems, like other
bugs, should be reported on builds no more than three weeks old, and preferably
on up to date versions.

practically speaking, lots of people of compiled Firebird 0.6 without problems.
 To diagnose this you need to figure out what make was doing before it bailed,
so the lines that came before the actual error would be rather helpful.

Guys, you may close this bug.  It was a bug in the build environment, not in
Firebird.  Thanks.
