Thanks to all who replied.  Steve Christensen created a new package,
removing PAM support, and resolved the problem.  Sudo is now working
great on Solaris 2.6.  The updated package is available on
www.sunfreeware.com for downloading.

Personally, I've had too many issues with the SunFreeWare packages to
use them for anything other than desperation moves in getting a compiler
on a new/isolated box, so I've stopped recommending their use.

Check the binary with an "ldd /path/to/sudo" to make sure it finds all
the libraries... that's generally the place to start, IMO.  Barring
that, I'd recommend a fresh compilation from your own box, if possible
(feel free to mail me directly (off-list) if you want or still need help
with the Solaris 2.6 thing... I still have an old box that I keep
functioning, including the periodic update to sudo and other necessary
