How to check sudo access of other users?

I always use "sudo -U user -l" as root and it gives me list of sudo access, that person have. But on one Solaris server, I can't run it. recently only I installed latest patchset on this server. Not sure, if that changed something on this. However, sudo package is showing old one.
# id -a stevenc
