What about splitting the job?

A lot of people still use Solaris 8, obviously. But Solaris 9 has nice 
features like Xrender, as you already mentioned.

I for my part built Qt 3.1.2 with Xft2 and fontconfig on Solaris 9 today. 
I haven't tested them yet, but I will soon. With gcc for now, but anyway. 
If anyone's up for testing, let me know.

I planned to switch to Forte 7 (or 8 EA), so we could share knowledge ;)
And if I had Solaris 9 x86, I'd definitely make packages for that, too.
