Calligra on Solaris

Calligra, the fork of KOffice, is now buildable on Solaris. Some parts are missing, however - Krita and Tables are not present because they require the Eigen linear algebra library. Eigen is basically a bunch of C++ templates and if there's one field where Sun/Oracle Studio is losing breath, it's templates. Due to a bug in Studio, anything that touches Eigen is unbuildable :-(

Also there are some nasty crashes, like in Plan and some modules fail to load due to broken linkage so you only get limited feature in Kformula, Flow and others, but this can well improve as soon as we run some ldd checks on the binaries.

Here're some screenshots:
