Well you have made some inroads then.
But to be honest, unless you get more of the subsystems
external to KDE up and running KDE will be missing huge pieces
of its multimedia and graphics capabilities.

Probably the easiest approach  is to look at the Solaris9
freeware companion CD  and  the web sites

www.sunfreeware.com    &     www.bolthole.com

and collect as many bits and pieces of the subsystems you can
from there.

Some things you'll need to build from scratch anyway.
The AALIB, ImageMagick  and  SDL  ports on the SUN COmpainon CD 12/02 is too OLD
even though they where built just last December.
