Sorry I have no access to a S10/x86 machine but you can use my scripts to
reproduce the results on S10/x86, simple download the script-tarball from
the start script for S10/ultrasparc was run-usr-local-sparcv9.sh you should look
into the script and change (or create new) some private settings. Also you must
change some compiler settings (CFLAGS, CC, ...) in build-base.sh (there is a
case switch for sunos).
KDE has a lot of external dependencies which sources are no longer available at
Sorry, its not so simple as it looks :)
