thanks to Joe, Ryan & one other person, the most
comprehensive one is from Joe which I've inserted below:
start with pkginfo.  Once you have the name of the
package, you can use pkginfo with the -l switch do get
more detailed information.  To check for proper
installation of the package, use the pkgchk command.

If your not sure of the package name but, can identify
a file that is modified or installed with the package,
search for the file in /var/sadm/install/contents. 
This will show the package name which you can use to
investigate with the other package administration
