Brent, I did the chmod as you suggested and sudo does work. But the 
software is still installed as corrupt. Here is the output from swverify 

       * Reading source for file information.

How bad are these errors? Is there something wrong with the 1.6.6 depot?

The difference between a feature and a defect is dependant on which 
cubicle you are sitting in.

I don't think the situation is as dire as it may seem.  Sudo installed, 
but it installed without the SUID set on the sudo binary (and nothing is 
actually corrupt).  You can do this yourself by doing a chmod 4111 on 
/opt/sudo/bin/sudo.  Should work fine.  If you have the resources, I 
highly recommend configuring and compiling the sudo distribution yourself.
