The archive should be updated when you reboot. Or you can run
        bootadm update-archive

At boot, the zfs_arc_min is copied into arc_c_min overriding the default
setting. You can see the current value via kstat:
        kstat -p zfs:0:arcstats:c_min
        zfs:0:arcstats:c_min    389202432

This is the smallest size that the ARC will shrink to, when asked to shrink
because other applications need memory.

The root of the problem seems to be that that process never completes.

9     /lib/svc/bin/svc.startd
  332   /sbin/sh /lib/svc/method/boot-archive-update
    347   /sbin/bootadm update-archive

Can't kill it and run from the cmdline either, it simply ignores SIGKILL. (Which shouldn't even be possible).
