"For now, firebird doe snot build on macosx 10.11" made building on Mac 
OS X 10.11 default to --disable-firebird-sdbc (while all other 
environments defaulted to --enable-firebird-sdbc).

"firebird compat issue with macosx 10.11 was fixed by sberg some time 
ago" erroneously assumed that the underlying problem had gone and that 
--enable-firebird-sdbc could be made the default again on Mac OS X 
10.11, too.  But what the commit actually did was erroneously make 
--disable-firebird-sdbc the default in /all/ environments.

"Make --enable-firebird-sdbc the default again" fixed the previous 
commit, and made --enable-firebird-sdbc the general default again.  It 
did not bother to re-introduce a special case for Mac OS X 10.11, though.
