I am having a problem installing pkg_get on a Solaris 9 Ultra Sparc 
60 machine. The current patch group has been installed. Below is the 
command I issued as root and the resulting output. I have downloaded 
the pkg file twice with the same results. I may be doing something 
simple wrong, however it is not obvious to me.

# pkgadd -d /root/pkg_get.pkg all

Processing package instance <CSWpkgget> from </root/pkg_get.pkg>

pkg_get - CSW version of automated package download tool
(all) 3.7.2

Dont forget to update /opt/csw/etc/pkg-get.conf with your nearest archive site.
(or /etc/opt/csw/pkg-get.conf)

Dont stick with the default of ibiblio.org: it's very slow!

Using </opt/csw> as the package base directory.
