This is only in the Dublin catalog left:

dam at unstable10s [unstable10s]:/export/mirror/opencsw-official > ls -l */*/5.8/pm_stringapp*
-rw-rw-r--   5 web      1001       32337 Mar 25  2010 dublin/i386/5.8/pm_stringapprox-3.26,REV=2010.02.01-SunOS5.8-i386-CSW.pkg.gz
-rw-rw-r--   5 web      1001       35519 Mar 25  2010 dublin/sparc/5.8/pm_stringapprox-3.26,REV=2010.02.01-SunOS5.8-sparc-CSW.pkg.gz

Please change your mirror settings in pkgutil.conf to the dublin catalog and you should be able to install it.

Best regards
