While if course in Linux a "dynamic link" concept like DLL does exist
and is widely used ("Shared Objects" ".so - files") why would you want
to use it in this project ?
DLLs/sos make sense if used by multiple executable. If you only do a
single executable it will be easier do use a decent unit concept in
Delphi or Lazarus.
Moreover Delphi supports "Runtime Libraries" to create a special kind of
DLLs, that are only usable by Delphi applications. Lazarus does not
(yet) support this concept and hence doing DLLs /sos needs to be done on
a rather "basic" level.
