I think we need more info on what you have done to help you .
however  You are supposed to compile and install the ARTS subsystem before
building KDElibs.

Also all the requierd and recommended subsystems on the KDE 3.1
requierments page


exept the things you obviously dont need to build on solaris 9
like Java, JSSE, XDPMS.  And the stuff that is for linux ONLY
like ALSA  and FAM .
