Portaudit merely reports on security vulnerabilities in the ports.
Portaudit will not prevent the install of a vulnerable port. The port
itself does that, by being marked as FORBIDDEN in the Makefile, because it
has a vulnerability.
You can configure portaudit to ignore the vulnerability in that port, but
that won't solve the problem of trying to install the port. To install the
port you must either update the port (if it's out of date) or install it
using DISABLE_VULNERABILITIES=yes when you make the port.
