Yes, they are basically very simple -- which is the main reason i 
didn't upload them -- the only thing they do is to set the right 
environment variables. For example, ".qt" does "setenv QTDIR 
"/opt/qt-3.3.0-32"", .pkg_config_path does "setenv PKG_CONFIG_PATH 
"/opt/fsw4sun/lib/pkgconfig", .ld_library_path sets LD_LIBRARY_PATH 
and LD_RUN_PATH, and so on (contrary to some urban legends, i do 
build KDE with LD_RUN_PATH explicitly set :-P). It's just my own 
paranoia to make certain everything points to the right path -- this 
is very important especially for libtool. I can tar.gz them and 
upload them if you're interested -- they are very small in size.

The stuff in /opt/fsw4sun was not trivial to port/build (took me 5 
weeks of work every single day on it). Many of them required code 
hacking. I could upload these with source, but i dont know where to 
do that -- they take quite a bit of space -- several hundred MB as 
tar.gz. And i was a bad boy and didn't make diff patches for these, 
thinking noone would ever be interested in them. :-(
