I understand instead of reinstalling the same package can be patched.

Hello
You should have SUNWlibms in your OS CD's .I haven't got a Solaris 8 system on my hand,but This package must found on the Solaris_8/Product_Directory
then You must"pkgadd" This from the Solaris_8/Product directory

What do you mean you need to "upgrade" it ?

The only way to upgrade Solaris 8 (and it packages) is to perform an upgrade install *or* download Solaris 8 Maintenance Update patch bundles and installing them.
