I use Ubuntu 7.10 (x86)

I did a quick search in the Ubuntu packages. Under Ubuntu (and Debian
I guess), you need to install a few required packages to get the
XForms demos to compile and link. The are some of the packages, which
allowed me to successfully compile and link all the XForms demos.

The binary XForms library (required)

The development headers for the XForms library (required)

A visual forms designer for XForms (optional)

I hope this helps.  Maybe this information needs could be added in a
readme file in the 'xforms' directory of FPC?
