If I correctly understand, you're trying to edit a form with 10.1.2 Forms builder, and then compile resulting FMB with 6.0.8 compiler : If so, then that won't work, you can't compile a newer FMB with an older compiler (you can do the opposite).
Shouldn't an 11.5.10 install have the ablitlity to compile with a later version of forms than that?
I wonder if there is an env setting I need to change

You need to consult your System Administrator (SA)! Typically the EBS Technology stack is locked into specific component versions, to include Forms. I honestly do not know if EBS 11.5.10 can be configured to use a version of Forms newer than Forms 6i. I do know that EBS R12 uses Forms 10g. It has been a while since I've worked with the EBS so you might want to ask your quesiton in the General EBS Discussion forum as this Forum is dedicated specifically to non-EBS Forms.
However, it stands to reason that if your Application Server is configured with Forms 6i that you should use the same version of Forms on your development workstations. Newer versions of Oracle Forms are not backward compatible with older versions of Forms - meaning, you can't edit in Forms 10g and expect Forms 6i to be able to compile the file.
I found the solution I needed exactly the same forms version in Windows and Unix
