pkg installation

I am trying to install a pkg in Solaris 10 but the install fails because a required pkg is not installed. Other than loading the required pkg, is there a way to workaround this requirement?

Sounds like this is a dependency issue - what package are you trying to install, and what is the other package that it requires?

There are hacks to workaround this, but what is the point as the installed package would very likely be unusable anyway, missing its dependencies ?
