Firebird install path is written in win registry and on windows it 
should be enough to find fbclient.dll but nevertheless it would be 
better to have a possibility to point the fbclient.dll directly for 
instance in IBConnection properties.
BTW: when I put Firebird path into project options / library paths 
Lazarus complains it "contains unusual characters",  probably it means 
"/Program Files (x86)/" dir
but it  doesn't check this path as a possible resource of fbclient.dll, 
it must be in the PATH or  located in SysWOW64 dir
