KDE3 will build given enough massaging and effort; if you want KDE3 I really 
recommend you just go get Belenix, since they have solved all of the build 
issues and make a nice (installable) liveCD with KDE 3.5 on it.

You might also be able to find their build scripts.

Bear in mind, though, that KDE3 is no longer actively developed (though it is 
maintained) and for Solaris we should aim more at KDE4 as a good stable future 
than anything else.
