aloha peter

i fully recognize that this effort might be for naught, but do appreciate
the attempt. after looking at the instructions to configure/build qt4 on
my unsupported solaris-10-sparc-gcc and the source/config changes made in
the past by those sharing the effort i decided it might better to ask
opencsw to give it a go and thereby giving more of us solarians the benefit
of a package but mostly to save me a bunch of eyestrain and headache.

if there is anything i can do to help you with this effort please give me a shout.
