dbx debugger license on SunOS

I've got a user who needs access to the dbx debugger.  It works fine on a box running SunOS 5.8, but on an older box, which runs SunOS 5.6, dbx refuses to run.  It returns the following error:

License Error:  The license file (/export/home/SUNWspro/...) does not have information about the product SunWorkShop
No such feature exists (-5, 116:2) No such file or directory
dbx: fatal error: cannot get a license to run

I wasn't around when these boxes were setup, so I don't know their history, and I'm not familiar with dbx, so I don't really know where I should be looking to get this up and working.  

Thanks for any suggestions!

This is a dependency issue. The problem is that the dbx program depends on the SunWorkShop package (SUNWspro). And that package is not installed on the v5.6 box. I am not familiar with SUNWspro, so I dunno if it is available on Solaris v5.6 - it might not be. If it isn't, then you'd need to install dbx on a machine that can support that packake.
