You can talk to Stefan Teleman at Sun about the official KDE 3.5.8 builds.

NETBSD-pkgsrc are working on the KDE 3.5.8 builds as well for Solaris 10 x86.

We are mostly working on the KDE 4.0b3 builds in preparation of the KDE 4.0 release.

Well, I don't know if reverting to a stock Solaris 10 (6/06) with the 
latest patches fixed my issue, or trying KDE 3.5.8 fixed it, but this 
comes to you from a konsole session on Solaris 10/x86.

For reference: below the libart stuff below seems to have been some kind 
of issue with the linker (a hand built gcc that used a hand built gnu ld 
worked for the same box, but I got some other errors, so I tried S10 
again).  The library was there.  I was pointing to it in every way I knew 
how...  My LD_LIBRARY_PATH pointed to it, and all manner of compile time 
flags didn't solve the issue (nor did the hand made (?) .la file, but I 
learned about libtool from that one :) ).

With my current config, the Sun included gcc 3.4.3 built KDE fine.  I 
don't think that this was the case before, but I've tried this so many 
times in the past couple months, that I don't remember all the gyrations 
that I went through.

Now, after building a base KDE (kdelibs, kdebase, kdeartwork, and some 
more building now), I am going to see if I can make it work with all the 
possible support libraries KDE might want (OpenEXR, etc.).  If anyone's 
interested, I can send along the flags I use to build it all.  I have no 
idea if this would work on Sparc as a process, but until I have everything 
flushed out on x86, I am not going to put my poor Ultra 5 to work on KDE 
juuuust yet ;)

Has anyone else had good luck with KDE 3.5.8 ??
