In retrospect, it seems like the right answer here is to use beadm from the new boot environment, or from the proto area being installed. (Using the "new" boot environment is a bit of a chicken and egg situation, isn't it?)

Perhaps beadm should be installed into the tools directory?

Would like thoughts of other developers.

I backed out your change, as it was incomplete (shame on me for not catching this during code review) -- you failed to install the image. Let me know if you have questions.

Also, in retrospect, as this is a short term workaround, perhaps just symlinking the default splash image to solaris.xpm would be easier/better?
