I don't think that download-vulnerability-list is at fault: it's
pkg_admin which doesn't work!
My shell is bash-3.2.33.
# download-vulnerability-list -x
getopt: invalid option -- x
Usage: download-vulnerability-list -hs [-c config_file]
Please use ``pkg_admin fetch-pkg-vulnerabilities'' instead.
# pkg_admin -x
pkg_admin: unknown option -- x
usage: pkg_admin [-bqSvV] [-C config] [-d lsdir] [-K pkg_dbdir] [-s
sfx] command args ...
Where 'commands' and 'args' are:
rebuild - rebuild pkgdb from +CONTENTS files
rebuild-tree - rebuild +REQUIRED_BY files from forward deps
check [pkg ...] - check md5 checksum of installed files
add pkg ... - add pkg files to database
delete pkg ... - delete file entries for pkg in database
set variable=value pkg ... - set installation variable for package
unset variable pkg ... - unset installation variable for package
lsall /path/to/pkgpattern - list all pkgs matching the pattern
lsbest /path/to/pkgpattern - list pkgs matching the pattern best
dump - dump database
pmatch pattern pkg - returns true if pkg matches pattern,
fetch-pkg-vulnerabilities [-s] - fetch new vulnerability file
check-pkg-vulnerabilities [-s] <file> - check syntax and checksums of
the vulnerability file
audit [-es] [-t type] ... - check installed packages for vulnerabilities
audit-pkg [-es] [-t type] ... - check listed packages for vulnerabilities
audit-batch [-es] [-t type] ... - check packages in listed files for
audit-history [-t type] ... - print all advisories for package names
config-var name - print current value of the
check-signature ... - verify the signature of packages
sign-package pkg spkg key cert - create signature

Okay, that makes sense: even with the config file in place, the trace
shows the data being read, but immediately following this pkg_admin
again outputs its usage text :(
