On the contrary, the idea is that more and more should come *out of
base* and into ports. Base is very static and stuck in time. By moving
these things into ports, you are able to get updates much simpler. No
need for an errata or security advisory or release. Just updating with
portaudit is not needed with pkg, just use 'pkg audit'.
