Hi all,

I have sxce b91 install on my laptop.  I am having trouble getting 
pkg-get to install any software.  It seems to be related to pkgadd.  
This is what I get from the command line:

# /opt/csw/bin/pkg-get -i common
WARNING: gpg not found
No existing install of CSWcommon found. Installing...
Pre-existing local file 
common-1.4.6,REV=2008.04.28-SunOS5.8-i386-CSW.pkg.gz matches checksum
Keeping existing file
Analysing special files...
Hmmm. Retrying with different archive offset...28 blocks

Processing package instance <CSWcommon> from 

common - common files and dirs for CSW packages(i386) 1.4.6,REV=2008.04.28

## Executing checkinstall script.
/var/tmp//installv8aacc/checkinstallz8aacc: test: argument expected
pkgadd: ERROR: checkinstall script did not complete successfully

Installation of <CSWcommon> failed.
No changes were made to the system.
ERROR: could not add CSWcommon.

I have done the above command with truss, and attached the file.  I 
gzipped it to reducer the size.

The only relevant text I get from the truss output is:

stat64("/var/pkg-get/downloads/CSWcommon", 0x0808EFC8) = 0
stat64("CSWcommon/install/depend", 0x0808EFC8)    Err#2 ENOENT
stat64("/var/pkg-get/pkgask/CSWcommon", 0x0808EFC8) Err#2 ENOENT

Maybe somebody can see something better than me.

Any help in solving this would be appreciated.
