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
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.
