I never realised that dll's have to go in bin/ which seems to have
caused the problem. I was also using $(eval $(call
gb_ExternalPackage_set_outdir,firebird,$(INSTDIR))) which I see won't
work with the above. Things now work!

I'm somewhat unsure of what I should be doing in scp now: I was
previously using firebird.filelist (generated from the the stuff in
ExternalPackage_* as far as I can tell) since that seems more elegant
than listing individual files -- is that the correct way to do things
(at the moment I only need libfbembed, but it's probable that further
files could need installing too in future)? (In the case above I had to
use gid_Dir_Brand_Root instead of gid_Brand_Dir_Program to get things
installed with the new paths.)

(Firebird on windows now crashes, I'll need to get a debug build ready
to find the reason, but it seems to be something to do with the sdbc
driver, the library is found without issues.)
