I tried it on Solaris 8 and it works fine. But I still have to hack the 
kdecorepart0.cpp file in order to cast pid_t to int:

--- ./kdecore/kdecorepart0.cpp.orig     Mon May 10 18:25:34 2004
+++ ./kdecore/kdecorepart0.cpp  Mon May 10 18:24:01 2004

                        const QValueList<int> *sipRes;

-                       sipRes = &sipCpp -> KStartupInfoData::pids();
+                       sipRes = (const QValueList<int> *)&sipCpp -> 

                        PyObject *sipResObj = sipConvertFrom_QValueList_1800
((QValueList<int> *)sipRes);

And during the compilation I got the following warning:

g++ -c -Wno-deprecated-declarations -fPIC -O2 -w -D_REENTRANT -DQT_NO_DEBUG 
-DQT_THREAD_SUPPORT -I. -I../extra/kde322

   destructor nor the class-specific operator delete will be called, even if
   they are declared when the class is defined.

I don't know whether it matters.

The importtest and the uisampler worked fine but I had to insert a "from kdefx 
import *" into the uisampler between the kdecore and kdeui import.

Good work!

My environment:

Solaris 8
sip 3.10.1
