Appears to be useless change. Firebird 4 currently can be installed on both types of systems with tommath 0 and 1.

I think there is a problem really.

Every time I try to install the binaries package in new Ubuntu I have a problem.

@Adriano - do you mean FB3 or FB4 binaries?
Can you try with current fb4 snapshot?

Alex, after installing linbcurses5, looks like ok now in Ubuntu 20.04.

However I must say I don't like that our installer creates symlink for in /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu as that system directories changes are generally handled by packages.

If I move this symlink to /opt/firebird/lib things still works. So why not use /opt/firebird/lib?
