[Lazarus] Embedded Firebird bundled with OSX application

I would guess that this is going to be very similar to running the same 
on Linux - but with the usual different flie location/conventions.

I have written up how to do this with IBX on Linux here 

However you do it, the really key point is to use an empty username and 
password as otherwise the embedded server will try and access the 
security database - and probably fail. Otherwise, set the FIREBIRD 
environment variable to point to the firebird installation and 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH to where the embedded server shared object is located 
and it may even work under OSX.
