Well that is *completely* WRONG.

Is that clear ?

When the software packages are installed they go into /opt/csw and
that is exactly what you will see in the HOWTO page also. Even more
important is that you set your PATH in your .profile ( or .bashrc etc
etc ) such that /opt/csw/bin and then /opt/csw/sbin are first in your
PATH. In that way you get the up to date cdrtools and openssh and
openssl and 1800+ other software titles.

Does this help ?

Next thing on my mind .. is how in God's green earth did anyone
install the software into some other place other than /opt/csw and
what the heck were they thinking ?
