Blue River,

The FileGDB driver is already part of the source distribution, but you
need to have the appropriate SDK from ESRI to build it.  We have not
produced a formal 1.9.0 set of binaries for GDAL but Tamas does
maintain a wide set of builds for windows.  I presume those don't
include FileGDB support for licensing reasons.

Note that FileGDB based backported to 1.8 in December (or November?)
sufficiently to produce a FileGDB package for OSGeo4W.  So you could
use that if you don't need any recent fixes.
