Thanks, I'll switch over to using pkg audit for the daily periodic job.

Should I do anything about removing out of date subdirectories in /var/db? 
There was a subversion-1.7.13 subdirectory but nothing for subversion-1.8.5. 
As an experiment I've now rebuilt subversion using portmaster and the 
subversion-1.8.5 subdirectory has been created but the subversion-1.7.13 
subdirectory wasn't deleted.
