pkgtools/lintpkgsrc (version 4.82, from pkgsrc-current) uses an incorrect
(outdated) path to the pkg-vulnerabilities file, which is also mentioned in its
On a sidenote, the program has no ability to check its own version number, the
way pkgtools/pkglint has (`-V' or `--version'). Perhaps this has been left out
purposely though, and `-V' is in use already as well. However, for example,
`-v' or `--version' (being the first option with two dashes, though) could
optionally be used for this. To add this functionality, the `-V|--version'
code from pkgtools/pkglint could be used as a base.
$ lintpkgsrc -V
Unable to open '/usr/pkgsrc/distfiles/pkg-vulnerabilities': No such file or
"man lintpkgsrc | less -ppkg-vulnerabilities"
No complete fix provided, but the following files should be altered /
pkgtools/pkglint/files/lintpkgsrc.pl (line 135, at the least)
pkgtools/pkglint/files/lintpkgsrc.1 (line 163)
pkgtools/pkglint/files/lintpkgsrc.0 (should be regenerated)
pkgtools/pkglint/files/makevars.map (unsure, but mentions `PKGVULNDIR')
