Along with the log attached.
It installed a mess of stuff but not all.
I aborted and it still installed the rest.
I have seen no adverse effects yet.
What does this mean?
ERROR: The command "/usr/sbin/mk_kernel", which is used to rebuild
the kernel, has failed. Because kernel-related filesets were
installed, this command must be executed by "swinstall",
without failures, before the load can continue. Check the
above output for details about the failure.
NOTE: The Install Phase has suspended. Check the above output for
Solved! Go to Solution.

The attached file only contains the result of the Analysis phase and there were no problems with that. If you have started the installation you can see the actual error messages in /var/adm/sw/swinstall.log.
I think some of the PHKL/PHNE patches would have failed to install properly due to kernel compilation errors.

For all your ld complains, you can follow these steps to go through one by one trying to find out which one related with which patch, then reinstall those patches.
1. cd /usr/conf/lib
2. nm *|grep -e Symbol -e prf_klog_getcount| pg
3. what /usr/conf/lib/libhp-ux.a | grep klog.0
Or, another simply way, run swinstall to do the reinstallation from beginning,
options --> change options --> check
 reinstall filesets even if same revision exists
 reinstall files even if same one already there
Hope it helps. Good luck!

Looks Like that did the trick. Reinstalling and forcing it to rewrite the files.
I learned enough to do the patches on our Production server this weekend.
Thanks all of you for the help.
Have a Happy Holliday.
