You are correct!  It wasn't found.

I see a couple of workarounds, either:
        (sym)link from /usr/bin/sudo to /opt/csw/bin/sudo
        Add /opt/csw/bin to the PATH environment variable in /etc/default/login

I am currently leaning towards the symlink solution, far fewer side-effects.  

Between puppet and fabric, it won't take long to change this on all my servers 

Thank you Michael for the help!
