When applying patches, it is vital that you have the most up to date
patchutils patch installed, currently we are at rev 38.
If you had applied rev 38, then 122231( and it's required patch
121453-02, which would have installed SUNWcctpx ) the package SUNWcctpx
would have been installed in the NGZ, and hence 122231 woudl also have
installed in the NGZ.
121453-02 actually delivers SUNWcctpx, and on my machine, this gets
installed to the NGZ, but you must have the latest patch utils installed.
Also, make sure to always run patchadd -a <patchid> before actually
runnign patchadd <patchid>
the -a will do a dryrun, boot any zones, check any dependencies and if
thre are fatal problerms it will inform you, but no software is installed
basically it just does a dryrun, it might not find all isuues, but will
certainly find some types of issues ( unbootable zones, missing
