t_look(3NSL) should never return T_ERROR
T_ERROR is undocumented, ancient, and buggy.
T_ERROR should be completely removed from TLI.

This doesn't seem too bad. The change only alters the style of one error return from the t_look() TLI function. The effects are not widespread. Most callers already handle both styles.
In addition to the commands that call t_look(), there is a kernel TLI-like function that can return type=T_ERROR . Fortunately, it has only two callers in the illumos kernel.
Testing is going to be the difficult part.
