The dynamic loader looks in the paths specified by a set of environment variables, and in the process's current directory, when it searches for a library. These paths are called dynamic loader search paths. The environment variables are LD_LIBRARY_PATH, DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH, and DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH. The default value of DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH (used when this variable is not set), is $HOME/lib;/usr/local/lib;/usr/lib.
but the installer doesn't make a symlink of the firebird library libfbclient.dylib in one of those locations.
