Has anyone successfully compiled kdevelop 3.1.2 on
Solaris yet?  I've tried it many hours without much
success.  Hope you kde gurus on this board can help
me solve a weird compiling issue.

My relative configuration is:

Solaris 9/SPARC with ALL the patches
kde_gcc 3.3.1 from blastwave.org
gcc 3.4.2 from blastwave.org
libtool 1.5.2 from blastwave.org

The gcc from blastwave.org is configured with:

That configuration is apparently hard-wired into
the gcc package.

Below is the error I got when attempting to compile
kdevelop 3.1.2 on my box:

gmake[4]: Enteringing directory '/usr/kdeusr/
/bin/bash ../../libtool (omitted till next line)

libkdevcppsupport.la against the

(similar lines repeated hundres of times)

I checked bdb/build_unix and found the libdb.a but
not shared library version.  How could this happen?
The config.log says my gcc supports shared library.
Any idea on how to fix this problem will be
