Kylix IS built on Wine. It is just the Delphi IDE (with some windows-specific
things removed) running under Wine. This is true for Kylix 1 and Kylix
2. Most likely, the release of BCB (planned in April, if I remember correct)
will also be under Wine.

The applications created by Kylix are native Linux binaries, though.
