It requires commenting one 1 line in a file in.../usr/lib/brands I think?  If
you hit the error, let me know.

Yes, but there is no up-to-date SPARC IPS server for openindiana as far as I
saw.  I did attempt to use the older OpenSolaris IPS repository to provision
zones, but that resulted in libc issues making them unusable. :(

I might be able to work around thatnot sure.  It would require quite a rather
large amount of workI don't have enough knowledge as to the solaris internals
to figure that out.
