Boy, that message *is* pretty obscure.

The list he's referring to is one of three lists - physical memory, virtual 
memory and free memory. He looks in the "memory" node for both "reg" and 
"available" properties, and in the "virtual-memory" node for the "available" 

If he doesn't find any one of those three properties, he gets that error. Look 
for init_memlists() in usr/src/uts/psm/.... in your stashed Solaris source.
