I seem to be getting a pkg_admin binary with the correct "--help"
output, but which won't accept the "fetch-pkg-vulnerabilities"
option. In what cases can this code-path be possible? I think you
mentioned some reduced-functionality bootstrap mode where this would
be left out?
I'm thinking that there must be some relatively simple explanation for
this behaviour - so if we can find out what's going wrong (perhaps a
hard-coded path or a test which unexpectedly fails on IRIX?) then it
shouldn't be too much hassle to fix...
(Or even, could this be due to the fact that the IRIX linker doesn't
re-order objects passed on the command-line, so if audit.o is passed
too early then it could (possibly?) be omitted entirely?)
