There shouldn't be any problems - as long as you don't use MIPS or SPARC 
hardware (

I have two blade servers (ultrasparc) around and I'm currently compiling 
KDE-3.2.3 and kdevelop-3.0.3 using gcc-3.4 - at least I try to - due to my 
last exam, I had to delay anything else, therefore, I hadn't had time to test 
that last solaris patch yet ... *sigh* ... nevertheless, I will do it :)
