FreeUDFLib.dll won't work on Linux. Some libraries have both Windows and
Unix versions but, unfortunately, FreeUDFLib isn't one of them.

that DOES have versions for both platforms (e.g. ib_udf or the new fbudf, or
look on the UDF page of the Tools pages). Or, if the
function from the FreeUDFLib is a "must have", see whether the Delphi code
will recompile in Kylix as a shared object; or rewrite the function
yourself in C or C++ and compile it yourself on Linux.
