This is strange. firebird does not depend on Qt, it's the other way around.
Recent firebird2 upload was in fact inspired by request of Christopher
Martin (CC-ed) - one of Qt maintainers, who also sponsored the upload.
My impression was that he wanted firebird2 to enter testing *before* Qt,
so Qt can continue to include support for firebird, which is now
impossible with current testing packages of firebird2, since they're
build with the old C++ ABI.
