Suppose you're using Solaris' CDE as your gui; what's a
reasonable choice, given that.

CDE, the Common Desktop Environment, is based on Motif, a commercial X toolkit. So Motif should be the first and best fitting choice. (And with Motif you have some extra choices for X resources.)

But you don't need to stick to this. Athena is always in X11 -- although not the best choice. You can always ask configure to work --with- whatever you prefer. When it's not in the system it won't be found and configure will fall back to what's there.

If you've once succeeded to install a usable version you can try to configure and compile another one with another GUI and start it as "src/emacs." If you think that's a better version, install it and try the next configuration.
