I still seem to be having a problem. I downloaded the pkg_get.pkg 
file from 
http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/blastwave.org/pkg_get.pkg as recommended.

# pwd
# ls -l *.pkg
-r-xr-xr-x   1 root     other      66560 Jun  4 16:29 pkg_get.pkg
When I run the pkgadd command I still get the same error.

# 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

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.

I installed this package on a Solaris 8 system at the office today 
without a problem.
