 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.
 With -x:
 # 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,
 otherwise false
  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
 configuration variable
  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 :(
