 Install the Solaris CD.
  Change to the /cdrom/solaris_2_5/s0/Solaris.2.5 directory
  pkgadd -d`pwd` SUNWhea SUNWarc SUNWbtool SUNWlibC SUNWlibCf SUNWlibm
                 SUNWlibms SUNWsprot SUNWtoo SUNWdfbh SUNWcg6h

format from either or

Make sure to read the 00README.packages file as it gives some very
usefull information about making thins work.
