It sounds like the SFWsudo package is damaged or incomplete.  You
should run "pkgchk SFWsudo" as root to verify that it is installed
correctly.  If you see output like:

ERROR: /opt/sfw/libexec/sudoers.so
    pathname does not exist

then the package is not installed correctly.  If you don't see any
errors then you can check that the file is actually part of the
package by running "pkgchk -l SFWsudo | grep sudoers.so" If the
file is not in the package then the package itself is broken and
you should file a bug with either the sun freeware folks or Oracle
(if Oracle is supporting the SFWsudo package).

Note that sudo 1.8.1p2 is rather old and access to newer sun freeware
packages requires a subscription.  You can find the official sudo
binary packages at http://www.sudo.ws/sudo/download.html#binary
