After reading your email, I tried that same example and also couldn't
manage to link it either. I didn't actually know "xforms" links to
FLTK toolkit — I thought there was a toolkit called XForms. :-)

I'm not sure what you are trying to do or write. But if you are
looking for a cross platform toolkit, you can give fpGUI Toolkit a go.
It currently supports Linux, *BSD (FreeBSD, DesktopBSD etc) and
Windows. It also compiles with 32bit and 64bit FPC compilers.

You can find more information on the website:

Another alternative is MSEgui.
