Thanks for the heads up on this. You should also head over to the KDE web
site and submit a bug on this.

Subject: [kde-solaris] Tar or GnuTar for theme installation ?


   I have been looking closely at the installation processes
made by  "gmake install"  on different KDE packages lately.

In  KDEBase-311 , while installing for  kcontrol/thememgr,

and  in  KDEartwork311  while installing for IconThemes and Themes :

For all these three installjobs  the configure process has chosen
/usr/bin/tar   to pack the themefiles into an archive.

However the flags given to the program is GnuTar flags. This ofcourse
is not a problem on Linux .  Still one wishes that
configure would look for  "gtar" if that is what it intends to use.
