I just managed to compile KDE 3.1.3 with GCC 3.3.1 and GNU Binutils 2.14 
on Solaris 9 x86. Works well :-)

There were a few glitches:
   - some of them seems to be because the new GCC is more strict about 
the code when -pedantic is used
   - some of them are C99 functions that GCC 3 does not support on 
Solaris, such as fabsf()
   - some of them I didn't understand altogether, and deactivated the 
build for the concerned part (kolf, kalarm).

Overall, it was a bit harder to build KDE 3.1.3 w/ GCC3 than it had been 
to build 3.1.0 w/ GCC2, on the same system.

Not sure if it's only because of GCC or because of new bugs, though.
