right target environment , SPARC or INTEL , packaged in a
pkgadd compatible stream-archive.....
it should install with
# pkgadd -d ./webadmin.pkg
if the filename is webadmin.pkg in the present directory.
this is different from how you install a pkgadd file-system-archive
that you have on say the Solaris OE cd's
If the package is in filesystem format you do :
# pkgadd -d . package-name
and pkgadd runs around in all the imediate subdirectories to see if
there is any pkginfo files in there with the desired package name in.
