Russell,
I am running KDE-2.1.1 on Solaris 2.6 and I am running kdevelop-1.4cvs.
First, to get KDE to run on Solaris you have to set a few environment
variables, e.g. KDEDIR and QTDIR, LD_LIBRARY_PATH, MANPATH, INFOPATH
and PATH. Then most of your problems will go away. 
Email me at rokrau at yahoo.com and I'll share my startup scripts w/you.
