I've packed together a minimal CrossKylix build that includes
the old Kylix 3 Open Edition, for those who wish to have a look
and/or test (to be provided) the bounty test project later on
without violating any Borland (RIP) licenses.

Please note that this has only been tested using my CrossKylix
Linux emulation under Windows. The original dcc compiler may
or may not work under Linux. If it does, at the minimum you'll
probably need glibc.i686 libgcc.i686. That's also what
built executables will need on x64 platforms to work.

Here is how to use it:

- Don't install into a path containing spaces

- ckdcc.exe is the dcc compiler wrapped in a Linux syscall
  emulation layer. Use it as you would use dcc.exe

- Project files need a special .conf file. See
  examples/helloworld.conf, and adapt paths there.

- Afterwards ckdcc.exe examples\helloworld.dpr should work.
