from my experience, i'm unable to do kile working on solaris 10, with 
blastwave or anything else. Even if compilation succeed, there are many 
problems when trying to use it, but perhaps it's due to my login with 
CDE instead of KDE?
I suggest you to use TexMaker (http://www.xm1math.net/texmaker/), best 
choice in a SunRay environment. It needs a recent release of Qt, be 
patient to compile it on a slow machine!
For Latex, we use TexLive or Tetex from Blastwave.
