Vincent, if you can not wait for build 129, there's a workaround:

edit the script: /usr/lib/brand/ipkg/pkgcreatezone

and comment out line 468 in the file and which looks like:
$PKG install --no-refresh --no-index SUNWcs || fail_fatal "$f_pkg"

if you comment it out, the zone will be installed fine.
