Getting it to compile will be the hard part.

I'd evaluate Kylix first. Not to put down FPC, but simply because it
probably has more likelyhood of compiling those components under Linux. Try
the free version, if it works, you could create a shared object, release it
under the LGPL and link to fpc code (maybe?) I wonder how Borland would take
that ;-)
