There's been an administration bogon just recently, but I think it's
been fixed. I've pulled up security fixes for sox and tiff already
today, and I will see if I can get to apache and bzip and freeradius
later on (although they're difficult for me right now).
I haven't seen a pullup request for firefox - if you find something
like this that you think should be pulled up to the pkgsrc branch,
please send a PR so that it doesn't fall through the cracks (and
likewise for anything that should be in pkg-vulneraibilities).
