After a bit of digging around, I arrived at the obvious conclusion: On
Solaris 11, the /var/sadm/install/contents file does not contain any
information about system files. We need to implement a new method of
getting files into the database, or create a fake file that can be
used as a compatibility layer.

In other words, Solaris 11 is too different from Solaris 10 for our
code to just work.
