Hi Jan,

I built and installed kde 3.5.9 on Solaris 10u4_x86 from sources and all 
packages compiles nicely with gcc 4.3.0(with gnu linker).
Install libs/packages that are needed and install them first.
Avoid using SunPro C++ compiled libs. Install your own or sunfreeware 
For kdebabel i think you need arts and kdebase packages and qt package.

Regards	Mats Röjestål

PS there are a few minor fixes/patches needed to get everything to
