Thanks for your reply. I have installed Arts then KDE libs then the KDE 
base package. I had a lot of problems with the version of bzip2 when 
compiling kdoctools portion. The version gcc was 3.2. I have installed 
all the essential (red) packages except the XServer which I presumed the 
Solaris version XSun would be okay for.
