most bizarre problem

So Yes something to do with ZFS was the culprit..

I had done a zfs upgrade -a and zpool upgrade -a in the past, but I 
guess I missed on the output that the / was not upgraded (of course)

So that was a problem; which may not have been the right one, but it 
gave me something to hunt..

I had to get a snapshot cd with a livefs.

kldload opensolaris and zfs and the kicker was this:

zpool import -f -R /alt tank

then I did the zpool upgrade -a and zfs upgrade -a

when that was done I could reboot and install world successfully..

I will find out what that flag does and find another box to test this 

Possibly the flag would have helped me install, but I could not find 
another way to zfs upgrade -a and get / without going to a livecd..
