In the current state of the patch, it doesn't find it because it is
looking for it in /usr/local/lib/firebird/plugins/libEngine12.so,
whereas our build system puts it in something like:

We need to have our custom-built firebird to look in the right place;
obviously we can also install libEngine12.so in a subdirectory of
"program" instead of directly in "program" if that helps.

Either this can be done by an argument passed to firebird's
./configure (something like --with-plugin-dir), or we patch the
dlopen() call to not pass an absolute path, but a relative path, or
