I need two output file as follows

If field3 in file1 is same as field3 in the next line then the field4 should add upto field4 in the next line and i should get a unique output as follows

ouput:

abc,def,ghi,15,jkl,mno
cba,ust,ihg,4,cdu,oqw


can somebody please help me with this as i require it pretty urgently. I am using sun solaris. If we can get the output using sed or awk that would be great. Any other way is also appreciated.
