So if I added the following to /etc/opt/csw/csw.conf and
/opt/csw/etc/csw.conf, if they don't already exist of course, the
services will be disabled by default.

I initially set # as the first character in inetd.conf but the package
install throws the following error.

Installing class <cswinetd> ...
Service '#amanda' not found in /etc/inet/services. Won't setup inetd for it.
pkgadd: ERROR: class action script did not complete successfully
[ verifying class <cswinetd> ]
