In a conversation with Stefan a while back, he suggested that we (users of Sun 
Workshop compilers) keep up with suggesting that KDE needs to be developed 
with Workshop in mind as well as GCC. Apparently there is a lot of code 
changes that need to be made in order to build a KDE with Sun Workshop. There 
are several performance benefits with using Sun Workshop on the SPARC/Solaris 

I have personally not attempted a build of KDE with Sun Workshop since, but 
why don't you fire away and mail the list when/if you run into problems? =}
