I am more familiar with pkgutil and haven't used pkg-get for a while,
but if you are using the current/ release branch (judging from the "From
site" output above) there are a couple of "remoterev" versions in the
list of yours which should definitely be more up to date. For reference
purposes: our website lists the package versions which are in the
current catalog. What's the mirror url setting in your pkg-get.conf?

To better troubleshoot this, could you please install pkgutil 1.9.1 and
run a couple of diagnostic commands.

1) Remove old pkgutil, download/install pkgutil 1.7

  pkgrm CSWpkgutil
  wget http://mirror.opencsw.org/opencsw/official/pkgutil-`uname -p`.pkg
  pkgadd -d pkgutil-`uname -p`.pkg
  <configure your mirror in /etc/opt/csw/pkgutil.conf>

2) Upgrade to pkgutil 1.9.1 (should not pull in any deps)

  pkgutil -Uu pkgutil

3) Run diagnostic commands

  pkgutil -V
  pkgutil -U
  pkgutil -C

This will display some diagnostic information (-V), fetch the current
catalogs (-U) and then compare your currently installed packages to the
ones on the mirror (-C, only displays different versions). You can use
something like http://pastebin.com/ to post outputs when they tend to
get long.
