Assuming you got it from here (Index of /ftp/pub/freeware/sparc/9), then the .message file in the parent directory says that it's most likely a gzipped pkgadd file, hence I guess it can be installed with the pkgadd command (Man Page for pkgadd)

---------- Post updated at 05:42 ---------- Previous update was at 05:36 ----------

Also check this: Download and Installation Instructions. There I found following:
cd /tmp
gunzip foo-1.00-sol8-sparc-local.gz
pkgadd -d foo-1.00-sol8-sparc-local

Thx for answer, I add it with pkgadd but I still get this error :
ld.so.1: tar: fatal: libintl.so.8: open failed: No such file or directory

I guess I have to open new topic
