svccfg -f line numbers should count from 1 not 0
If you pass a command file to svccfg(1M) with the -f option, line numbers for error purposes appear to count from 0, causing much user confusion. They should count from 1, as line numbers traditionally do.

Huh. The file I was working with was definitely erroring with a number one before the line that was actually problematic:
> cat ~/test.scf select pkg/server add nightly-debug select pkg/server:nightly-debug addpg pkg application setprop pkg/port 8050 > svccfg -f ~/test.scf svccfg (/export/home/richlowe/test.scf, line 4): Syntax error. > sed -ne 4p ~/test.scf addpg pkg application
The error in the above is the missing '=' in the setprop.

I hope my analysis is correct:
