[kde-solaris] isinf problem (and others)

The problem with the -mt flags comes from packages witch are compiled with
sun compiler  and configure searches in the packages path for example in 
/usr/lib/pkgconfig this two files includes -mt flag.
Fix is that you could install your own gcc compiled version from src or 
preecompiled packages from sunfreeware and put this path first in your 
environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH.
If the included lib is a pure c lib you could edit the *.pc file and remove -mt 

Hope that helps.
