error on clusterware installation

We are trying to reinstall clusterware on a sun solaris sparc 64 bit, clusterware 10gr2, using veritas storage foundation version 5.x.

The installation goes fine to the point where the unix admin runs, and we get this message. This is a reinstall, we had to change the name of both boxes on the cluster, so we should have everything we need for installation. It looks like to me it is looking for skgxn library, but according to the documentation that's not needed for veritas storage foundation. Anyone have any ideas?:
