It's been a while since i've posted any updates on KDE Solaris, so i
thought it was time to keep everyone informed:

I am working on KDE. As everyone knows, KDE has a ton of dependencies
on other libraries, and this is what I am actually working on, right
now. Many of these dependencies aren't for KDE exclusively.

Up until now, all these libraries were in /opt/fswsun. They won't be
there any longer, and they will be integrated in some reasonable
location. Not clear where yet,  maybe /usr/gnu, maybe some other
location, but definitely not /opt/fsw4sun. Many of them will be
updated to a more recent version.

KDE, and its dependencies will be available as both 32- and 64- bit,
for both IA32/AMD64 and UltraSPARC V8PLUSA/V9A. Up until now, it was
only 32-bit. It takes a while to get these things working properly,
especially in 64-bit.

The compiler is Sun Studio 11.

I'm not slacking. :-)
