Yep, there is a lag. I'm trying to put the portaudit database on a web
server in order to guarantee more timely updates, but there has to be
*some* lag. Part of the problem is that VuXML has entries like `>=...'
which are changed when a port is fixed. Although you can never know the
version that fixes the problems, I would prefer `<=current'.


might be ok if you live in north america, otherwise you can try

  env MASTER_SITES=http://people.freebsd.org/~eik/portaudit/ portaudit -Fd

occasionally, which should lag at most 30 minutes.
