As several people have said, this is not possible as the pkg* 
utilities are in SUNWcsu, which is a core Solaris package.  
Looking at the machines again, I see those files there so I 
will have to look at what I was doing yesterday and figure out
what I was doing wrong.

/me feels even more like a goof.
