Right, that's another workaround we already use for SAP installations in
/usr/sap. Since SAP does not use pkg-files for installing this works fine.
Thanks for that hint - I've forgot to mention.
Unfortunately we have some other software in pkg-format for which no workaround
fits at all. In these cases the only solution is reinstalling local zone or -
if possible - converting /usr from inherited to plain copy.
