Maybe there's another file taking precedence that you've created
earlier. You can look in the startup script to see the possible my.cnf
file locations.

Maybe it's just so deeply ingrained in my brain that I no longer see
it possible any other way. But I do include this explicitly in the new
setup docs: http://wiki.opencsw.org/checkpkg#toc20

There are two separate issues:

1. what there is
2. what there ought to be

Maybe it'd be better for some reason if pkgdb worked from /opt/csw/bin
(issue 2), but it currently doesn't (issue 1). So if you try running
the one from /opt/csw/bin, it will likely fail.
