I had a look at Kylix's RaiseLastOSError function. It uses
GetLastError which calls '__errno_location' from 'libc.so.6'. On
Windows this uses the GetLastError WinAPI call.

This is Delphi's implementation for RaiseLastOSError:

procedure RaiseLastOSError;
  LastError: Integer;
  Error: EOSError;
  LastError := GetLastError;
  if LastError <> 0 then
    Error := EOSError.CreateResFmt(@SOSError, [LastError,
    Error := EOSError.CreateRes(@SUnkOSError);
  Error.ErrorCode := LastError;
  raise Error;

Yes, the variables from GetVersionEx.
