Hm. it seems to be included, sorry.. but not installed if you do a
jumpstart with the SUNWCXall cluster which is "Entire Distribution Plus
OEM Support" .. So I guess it won't be installed if you just click on
that in the install program either.. It's optional, so assuming it
exists _will_ break stuff.. (and AIX, IRIX, HP-UX, ...)
