Err... I just did a test install.

mkdir /tmp/test
pkgadd -d pkg_get-4.3,REV=2009.10.04-SunOS5.8-all-CSW.pkg -R /tmp/test

ls -ld /tmp/test/opt/csw/bin
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     bin          181 Oct 12 08:52

seems to work ok. this is on sol10.
is it more broken on sol8 or something?

otherwise... please note that if the directories exist, and have DIFFERENT
ownership... the ownership will stay whatever you had it before.

That's not technically a bug in pkg-get, that's a PEBKAC bug :-}
