I havent had any problems with it. Since the FCS relaease Gnome2
is in the standard /usr/bin /usr/lib structure
There are some additional libs / includes under /usr/sfw like
jpeg png and such which I am using
for KDE as well with success.
Im building the full KDE 3.1.3 now with Gcc 3.3 patched
for the " internal compiler error"
that was exposed by the arts-1.1.3 gsl sources . the Gnome
2.0 FCS packages are on the
So far I have done arts, libs, base, utils, admin, toys, games,
sdk, network & graphics.
Im not using any script though . Its likely that this build
script you mention has problems.
What I am doing is that I have built approx 90 % of the
requiered and recommend subsystems
to KDE with Forte 7 compiler , as these subsystems are written
in C Language.
Some of them like FAM and MAD depends on Gcc extensions and
are also very linux dependent .
so I have skipped FAM but build MAD with GCC.
Stefan has mentioned that He ported FAM to solaris , It
would be great to get hold of that
I belive I am now seeing a performance improvment with the
new SPARC optimizer thats built
in to Gcc 3.3 . Jörg Schilling reported in one of the solaris
news-groups on usenet that
gcc 3.3 compiled code was only 14 % worse than Forte 7
compiled code, as compared to
30 % worse for Gcc 3.2
As I still have all the old binaries in renamed directories Ill
do some comparisons later on.
