I have OpenSolaris installed locally in a VM - I was simply going to run pkg-util to install everything, get the list of packages from there (suggestions?), then download all of those into a directory to give to the sysadmins.

Should I give the sysadmins a particular order to install in, and if so, how would I go about getting that order via pkg-util on my local Solaris VM?
just a suggestion ... you may ask your sysadmins if they'd be kind enough to create a symlink for you. having done that, /opt/csw could easily be located at /usr/local/csw, and things may work as designed while still keeping your sysadmins happy.
