NRPE 2.13 not working with Solaris 11

I have been running an Solaris 11.1 System with your nrpe 2.12. This
package was quite old from a stable branch.
Today, I updated my stalbe mirror and there was an nrpe update 2.13. It
works with every Solaris 10 system, but not with solaris 11:

The service goes into maintenance:
[ Apr 30 11:36:02 Executing start method
("/var/opt/csw/svc/method/svc-cswnrpe start"). ]
/var/opt/csw/svc/method/svc-cswnrpe: line 44: syntax error at line 58: `('
[ Apr 30 11:36:02 Method "start" exited with status 3. ]

It seems like an scripting error, since nrpe seems to work:
root at server ~ # /var/opt/csw/svc/method/svc-cswnrpe
/var/opt/csw/svc/method/svc-cswnrpe: line 44: syntax error at line 58: `('
root at server ~ # /opt/csw/bin/nrpe

But i haven't been able to find the reason yet.
Can anybody reproduce this problem?

Best regards
