I will be just guessing because you haven't supplied any information 
about the program which you try to link, but I would suspect that you 
might have tried to link an externally created object file 
(u_unidat.o? - possibly just renamed from u_unidat.obj as previously 
used with VirtualPascal?) and it has object file format not supported 
by our linker. If this assumption is correct, you might need to re-
create the object file in the right format supported by FPC and/or 
the GNU linker.
