firebird 2.5.1 on slackware 14.0

Is any body who installed Firebirdsql 2.5.x on Slackware 14.0?

I'm trying to compile from source and I got an error:
gmake[6]: Entering directory `/usr/src/another/Firebird-'
gmake[6]: *** No rule to make target `uconvmsg/uconvmsg_dat.o)', needed by `uconvmsg/libuconvmsg.a'. Stop.

gmake[1]: *** [external_libraries] Error 2

Any suggestion?

try passing --with-system-icu to ./configure

actually you need to pass it a lot of options: the build system for this interbase fork seems really borked, so I can understand why nobody felt the need to write and mantain a slackbuild...
