Thanks Jerry for the quick reply. I am making progress, but no cigar (yet). Now 
I have:

zoneadm: zone 'X': ERROR: attempt to downgrade package SUNWgtar, the source had 
patches but this system does not

It does not give me a patch number, so I can't add it to the bad_patches file. 
Or maybe it does ? 
Is there a list of patches I should add to bad_patches for this to work ? The 
workaround mentions an attached file, but I don't see it.

This is bug:

6743776 zone update on attach should ignore all "special" patches

This is escalated and a patch is being developed.  The workaround
is in the bug report (the workaround is actually the fix).  It
updates the /usr/lib/brand/native/bad_patches file.  You can manually
do this as well.
