Essentially what you need to do is to write your application as a winelib 
application. That means it will have a code similar to a Win32 EXE but will be 
in ELF format.

I have no idea if/how you can do that using fpc.

An alternative would be to write a winelib proxy program and talk to it 
through a socket or some other form of IPC.

Finally, if your application depends too much on some DLL (especially things 
you cannot easily proxy like graphics) just make it a Win32 EXE.
