This is where the actual error starts:

Close, at least, that's what I think. Since the declaration is private,
any other objects will have no access to it, even if they are embedded.
The declaration should be protected instead of private.

Here's the relevant part:

class KAcceleratorManagerPrivate


  class Item;
  typedef QPtrList<Item> ItemList;


  class Item


    void addChild(Item *item);


Can you change the "private" to "protected"? If that works, it's either
that the g++ compiler is too lax, or that the SunOne compiler is too
strict. I don't have time to look up the exact rules :)


PS: Can I get that compiler from somewhere? I'd like to give the
compilation a try. I hope that it will result in a faster KDE...
