It is quite confusing.
Unfortunatly the term Sun Freeware is used for many things. 

------< snip from http://cvs.opensolaris.org/source/ >------------
    * sfw contains the sources for the SFW (Sun Freeware) consolidation 
      which delivers its content (third party and open source software)
      into /usr/sfw as an integral part of the Solaris OS, and should not
      be confused with the Freeware Companion CD/DVD.
Source can be found at http://src.opensolaris.org/source/xref/sfw/usr/src/

Then there are the bits they put on the Freeware Companion CD/DVD which
are installed in /opt/sfw.

Then there is the totaly seperate project (although sponspored by Sun)
