At least in the case of ClamAV, one ought to run freshclam on a regular basis,
and the port provides a daemon which will keep your definitions up-to-date
If your complaint is that neither vendor's most recent definitions fail to
catch some known viruses, that's a different problem, which you should discuss
with the vendors directly, since that has little to do with FreeBSD ports.
