Take a look at Kylix from Borland.
(http://www.borland.com/kylix/open/index.html)

Note that the language is not BASIC. Kylix 3 onwards supports C++ &
Object Pascal (i.e. the equivalents of Borland C++ Builder & Delphi
on Windows)

It is NOT open source, but there is an "Open Edition" that is free as
long as you release your program under GPL.

It is a 90Mb download so you may prefer to get hold of it from the
June 2003 PCQuest DVD.
