Our release is compiled using the gnu toolkit, gcc binutils, etc ...

Here is the swap usage on my ultra 2 with 512Mb ram running a default 
kde session with one console.

total: 55048k bytes allocated + 37192k reserved = 92240k used, 1364312k 

Try to compile kde with gcc, and binutils or try our release. I have 
tryed diferent releases, compiled with gcc and sun's cc, but never the 
same version and the cc versions seemed to be little bit heavy, but 
really i cannot affirm it, so if you have some more test would be nice 
to know them :)
