What about this?

I'm not a fan. With Sphinx it's even worse, because it thinks that #
is a comment and screws up the rest of the line; Sphinx highlights
shell syntax and PS1 is not part of it, so you can't blame Sphinx.

If you insist on including instructions how to set up sudo, you can
copy the relevant snippet from my Usable Solaris howto.

pkgutil -y -i sudo
echo "${YOUR_REGULAR_USER} ALL =(ALL) ALL" >> /etc/opt/csw/sudoers
chmod 0440 /etc/opt/csw/sudoers
