Although I doubt that it's quite what you're looking for, I'm currently
working with a product called CodeBase which manipulates DBFs and is
available for both Linux and Windows.  However, it's a development toolkit,
not an end-user application.  But if I'm wrong and you are doing custom
development, it's worth taking a look at.
