SUMMARY: SunOS 4.1.x Patch List

Thanks to the following people:

Thomas Anders, Brett Lymn, Charles Seeger, and Matthew Stier.

Basically everybody seemed to be in agreement that there is no "easy" way of
checking to see what patches are installed. There are a few files
[/etc/install/patch*] where you can manually list the patches that were
installed. The showrev -p command is supposed to list what is in those

One suggestion was to do a file by file comparisson to determine if the
patch(es) were in fact installed. This could be done in a script; however,
such a script would require some testing before implementation and I am on a
tight timeline.
