i just did a fresh install of kde from blastwave on my solaris 9 machine 
from the ibiblio.org mirror without any issues. the problems that you're 
experiencing are most likely realted to some pkgadd bug. you should 
install the latest patch cluster for the version of solaris that you're 
running and try installing again.
