Ok Delphi please look a freepascal http://www.freepascal.org/

http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/FPC_and_Apache_Modules  They nicely cover linking straight into Apache Module system and being native code.

Best way is basically don't use wine/linux in a web server setup if you can. 

Wine is quite a large overhead.  Also if application uses 1 hidden window as a lot of code does.   It needs a X11 server of some form to run  best performance comes out a Linux server when  you don't have to run graphical.

Linux can be made speak a lot of different interlink types.  The ones vitamin listed have a fairly low overhead.   http://tldp.org/LDP/lpg/node7.html Good read of the defualt ones build into posix standard.

If you don't mind higher overheads freedce can be used to give dcom as well as the newish standard http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D-Bus .

There are many more options.  D-Bus has a lot of parts on it you can out box that are native code.  D-Bus is the closest thing to a Linux Com system its also being developed to operate on windows.

PS try native msvcrt  that spot in wine kinda need a rework some application take off like a bat out of hell when doing a lot of string processing when that is changed.
