It doesn't work for you? What system are you using. I'm using SuSE 8.1 and
although the IDE isn't stable the command line tools run well.

Well, first of all, as you might guess, the ABI of Kylix and gcc shared C++
library is different. Maybe that will change with version 4 of Kylix (I heard
that the gcc 3.2 ABI is becoming some kind of standard). So, Kylix shared
libraries cannot be linked with ld. One needs to use Kylix ilink instead (or
maybe bc++, but I haven't tried that). However, be aware that the Kylix
generated shared libraries somehow are "unstable" and cause runtime errors
and segfaults in applications using them. You'll find a couple of bug reports
concering these issues on Borland's Quality Central. Note that, for whatever
reason, static libraries seem to work flawlessly.
