It is in the September 2004 port-i386 archives.

chkrootkit 0.44 changes indicate the problem was fixed, but it was not
according to a message on tech-pkg in December.

chkrootkit 0.45 is now available. Maybe it fixes the problem.

I have also used rootkithunter (rkhunter) several times. But I don't think
it is pkgsrc yet. (I have old patches from September.)
