It looks like I have a libstdc++ issue:

uli at uli:~ $ grep __builtin_new /opt/lib/
Binary file /opt/lib/ matches
uli at uli:~ $ grep __builtin_new /usr/lib/
uli at uli:~ $

(and firebird is linked with the 6.2-2 version)

I'm still out of clues on what to do here (other than telling myself
to stop using precompiled binaries and go and compile firebird
