Hello Chase,

My reply doesn't directly answer your questions or provide you with the 
packages that you are asking for.

With that out of the way, I would share that I did something similar 
back some time ago.  I had posted my question to the Sun Manager list. 
Below is my summary.

My package list is a little different from the one in the URL that you 
provided.  And it did work well for me.

Hope that this is of some value.

Toby Rider cut straight to the chase and
effectively said, "Just put the 2.6 cdrom in your drive and
install the packages that you need from there".  This was the
winning answer.

Listed here are the specifics.  I placed my 5/98 release of
Sparc Solaris in the drive then cd'ed to the package directory
on slice 0.  A pkgadd -d .
came up with 474 packages.  Shown below are the packages required
for the Leo frame buffer to become operational.  Order is important
as some packages rely on other packages being present.

PKG#        pkgname
432        SUNWxglrt
268        SUNWleo
270        SUNWleoo
272        SUNWleow
271        SUNWleor

After these packages were installed, I did a re-configure boot
and everything is working well.
