Here's the status of various KDE efforts *to my limited knowledge* (I only lurk on 
the email alias ...):
- the last widely available version is indeed 3.4.3 from blastwave, as built by Stefan
- fairly recently (beginning of July), Michael Lindig published a binary "release" 
of 3.5.7 for Sparc (see http://leute.server.de/lindig/drupal/?q=node/14 and 
ftp://ls12-ftp.cs.uni-dortmund.de/outgoing/KDE/3.5.7/ for src and bin)
- just this week, Brett Albertson said he'd built 3.5.7 on x86; I'd suggest you go 
to the archives and peruse them for the details (I for one would welcome it if 
Brett would offer those bits for download *wink*)

as of now, KDE 4 (for Solaris?) is work in progress - if you watch this list from 
now on, you'll see progress reports now and then as people tell us about various 
components being finished (again, go to the archives for past ones).

if you want to help, we'll get there so much sooner :-)
