The problem appears to be that rrdtool was not compiled to build the Perl modules required for Perl support, or else they were not included in the package for some reason:
bash-4.0$ pkg contents rrdtool | grep pm
So if I try and run one of the rrdtool example perl scripts I get an error:
Can't locate RRDs.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl /usr/perl5/5.8.4/lib/i86pc-solaris-64int /usr/perl5/5.8.4/lib /usr/perl5/site_perl/5.8.4/i86pc-solaris-64int /usr/perl5/site_perl/5.8.4 /usr/perl5/site_perl /usr/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.4/i86pc-solaris-64int /usr/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.4 /usr/perl5/vendor_perl .) at /usr/share/rrdtool/examples/4charts.pl line 6.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/share/rrdtool/examples/4charts.pl line 6.
If I use pkgtool to build rrdtool from spec-files-extra then it does build and install those modules, so perhaps it's easy to fix?
bash-4.0$ pkg contents SFErrdtool | grep pm

Matthew - The RRD*.pm perl modules are optional - not a requirement for the Oracle-based IPS packages. This can be a feature request but we already provide this in the SFE-extras spec. Closing ticket.
