Solution
 1. Confirm that a Solaris bundled linker was used
 2. Identify the linker version required by the kernel patch state
 Solaris 10 on Sparc:
 Solaris 10 on x86:
 Solaris 11:
 3. Check the linker version of the linker executable
 4. Check the linker libraries version
 5. Check whether all these linker versions are the same
 6. Check whether individual files were manually replaced
 7. Check whether package SUNWtoo was manually replaced
 8. Check whether kernel patch installation or uninstallation partially failed
