[fpc-pascal] getting system time in linux

How is it possible to get the system time in linux?
It used to be possible by using 'getsystemtime' of the unit oldlinux, 
but this unit is no longer available on my compiler...

The thing I want to use it for is: I get a packet form libpcap, with the 
time of receival in system time.
I want to convert this time to system time by doing something like:
rcvTime := packet.rcvTime + (now - getSystemTime)

Kind regards,
