1) It could be just a typo - if that document was prepared in early 2000,
there was 5.6 and it made sense - the version number changed to 6.0 but no
one re-read the paragraph - typical Borland'ish
2) It could be that the Linux/Kylix *drivers* require a license. Open
sourcing a database doesn't mean all the drivers have to be open source
and/or free
