A simple "make check-vulnerable" in pkgtools/pkglint takes about six
seconds on my machine. In these six seconds, pkg_admin(8) is executed
2972 times. It _must_ be possible to achieve the same thing in less than
0.5 seconds.


cd ${PKGSRCDIR}/pkgtools/pkglint && time make check-vulnerable


Fix security/audit-packages to not call pkg_admin(8) that often.
