The sanity check on the BOOTDIR and IMPORT jdk too are not very good.
They don't even verify it is 1.6.0 much less checking for a javac.

I'm surprised these are not full jdk images.
Where did the OS install come from? With the machine?

It used to be that there was Solaris end-user installs and developer
installs, it was always important to get a full developer install of
Solaris, including all the 'companion cd' bits, which I think they
I'd be tempted to install a fresh OpenSolaris image on this
machine, and go 'open' ;^)
