I'm not familiar with linux but In our environment (UNIX) during compilation
we use
cat /dba/oracle/product/oas_10.1.2/bin/comp.sh
that contains
  # You should not normally need to modify these settings.
  if [ `uname -s` = 'SunOS' ]; then
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
  elif [ `uname -s` = 'HP-UX' ]; then
      export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
  elif [ `uname -s` = 'Linux' ]; then
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH

the ORACLE_HOME points to the home of the application server (ORACLE_HOME=/dba/oracle/product/oas_10.1.2)

the FORMS_PATH  points to the directories of the  pll-libraries
the current directory during our compilation is the directory containing the fmb

In EBS R12, you cannot simply use the basic Oracle Forms10 compile program to compile *.fmb files that are part of EBS, like you could if you had a custom app that used Oracle Forms10.  There is a special EBS executable (it might be adadmin.sh in the $ADMIN_SCRIPTS_HOME of the application server) that you have to use for this task.

You have to use the "adadmin" utility in EBS R12 to recompile a form.  In our system, that utility is in: $APPL_CONFIG_HOME/ad/12.0.0/bin.
