Every operating system comes with this caveat; OpenBSD just says it out 
loud. No BSD, nor any Linux distro, has the resources to go through the 
source code of all ported software, to make sure it has no holes. This 
responsibility is left with the developers of the software in question. 
Which is one of the reasons why porters should make as little 
modifications as possible, and document the modifications they do make: 
so that it is clear where the developers' responsibilities end and the 
porters' responsibilities begin (and vice versa).
