How to find out installed patches on Sun5.9

Hi Unix Experts,

I'm told to install WebSphere MQ on Sun 5.9 box. Before I install it, my task is to find out what OS patches have already installed on the box.

I tried pkginfo -i command but it gives all of the packages installed.

I want to find out a specific patch has been installed or not on the box.

Any idea or help would be highly appreciated.
