[kde-solaris] Problems running kde 3.1.1 on Solaris 9

Dear All,

I have managed to compile everything up to and including  kde base 3.1.1 
(that is qt 3.1.1, kdelibs3.1.1 and kdebase 3.1.1). After much tweaking 
and related package installs, I managed to get these to compile and 
install. The kde desktop now runs but produces rather a lot of 'ERROR 3: 
couldn't create slave: Unable to create io-slave' errors. It also 
complains about Unknown protocol 'file' (or 'ftp' or 'http' depending on 
what is attempting to run).

I presume something is missing or I have compiled it incorrectly. 
Everything else works with regard to the desktop etc but these error 
occur when running the help system, konqueror and other applications.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Many Thanks,
Philip Jackson.
