If you're using S10 or SXCE, use "man zonecfg" and read the section on
"Whole Root Zones."  The supported way to do this is:

        remove inherit-pkg-dir dir=/lib
        remove inherit-pkg-dir dir=/platform
        remove inherit-pkg-dir dir=/sbin
        remove inherit-pkg-dir dir=/usr

("create -b" is simpler and has essentially the same effect, but isn't
supported because it removes all inherited directories, and if we were
ever to add more directories, it may remove ones that shouldn't be

If you're using OpenSolaris, I think you shouldn't be having that
