I did a little digging around in the Zoularis archive, and came up with:

"If you are making the Zoularis environment on Solaris, please note
that in order for this to work you need to have the following Solaris
packages installed:  SUNWbcp, SUNWscpr, SUNWscpu, and SUNWxcu4 (thanks
to Jim Wise for the info)."

A quick look through yields the following programs which
exist in /usr/xpg4/*:

EGREP?=         /usr/xpg4/bin/egrep
ID?=            /usr/xpg4/bin/id
SED?=           /usr/xpg4/bin/sed
TAIL?=          /usr/xpg4/bin/tail

I must admit that I didn't really notice what packages were installed
when the Solaris support was originally made, sorry.

Anyway, I'm fairly sure that someone once posted a list of Solaris OS
packages that needed to be installed for pkgsrc on Solaris - I just
can't find it at the moment. But I'm also fairly sure that the xpg4
one is needed - see above.
