These are some add ins software which are optional to install on solaris.
comes with supplement cds or as freeware cds.

there is nothing like system files and all in this directory.
lots of free tools available on solaris as a freeware ported by different people/organization and not supproted by Sun.

if u tell u purpose why did u ask this question i may be more clear in answering.

U will be having packges like GNU tools, like gcc/gmake/mysql/php/ many libraries from GNU. tools like CD player and all. these are all provided by GNU or third party software but works on Sun, and kept in this directory.

/opt is used for optional software packages  and sfw -> softwares.

I think i am clear as i could be.

Most of the Solaris 9 OS freeware packages (comes with supplement CDs or as freeware CDs) install in /usr/sfw and /opt/sfw.

Have a look at the following FAQ to learn more:

Also you can get a lot of freeware from:
