The arpwatch package does not honor the -a flag, as per manpage.
According to manpage, this should disable the check for local network,
however, if you try to use it, arpwatch produces an error message.
1) Try to enable arpwatch with '/usr/pkg/sbin/arpwatch -a'

2) It fails with the following message:

testi-2:(root)/var/db/arpwatch# arpwatch -a
Version 2.1a11
usage: arpwatch [-dN] [-f datafile] [-i interface] [-n net[/width]] [-r file]

Looking through the pkgsrc/net/arpwatch/patches/patch-ac , it looks
like someone added the description for -a flag to the manpage, but
forgot to add the related patch to patch the actual source code.
