i am new to this list and was going through some of the list archives.

i have a question regarding which compiler to use/support for kde
since i couldnt figure out if a consensus was reached or not.

gcc, suncc or both ?

before i start compiling/testing the kde sources, which compiler would
you recommend to use ???

i am assuming that gcc/g++ would be easier since most of linux/bsd
folks would use gcc and would require less patch work of the default
svn code.

does opensolaris require full support compiled under sun studio also
for running kde or would a binary from gcc be good enough ??

is there any technical advantage of using one compiler over the other ??

i am currently running belenix on an athlon xp machine.
