Unless you're willing to shell out cash, the all functionality
provided by scp2 appears to be provided with OpenSSH and presumable
the Sun packages too, right down to the command line switches.

You'll probably find all you need to do is "ln -s /usr/bin/scp
/usr/bin/scp2" for the installer to work. You might want to check with
your software vendor just to confirm this so you're not invalidating
any support contracts or anything.
