I have finally compiled kdelibs-3.3.2 on Solaris 2.6. I had to make
certain patches to get this to work.

1. Must replace all occurences of "/bin/sh" in configure to "/your/bash"
2. Must export CONFIG_SHELL=/your/bash
3. Must make the patches noted in the attached file (note, this file
is not a "patch" file per se, it shows the tail of the error that
necessitated the patch, followed by the diff output of the change). I
am not claiming that these patches are the "best" solution, but they
work for me. (I guess the best solution would be to change the
configure script a lot more to detect Sol.2.6 better).

I am currently building kdebase and will let you know how it goes.
It's amazing but ancient versions like Solaris 2.6 are still in use -
in production - in large corporations for key systems. If anyone needs
help with kde on Solaris 2.6 feel free to drop me a line.
