Hi David,

Just to clarify there are two versions of audit-packages.  Up until
pkg_install-20070714 there was only the security/audit-packages package.
 As of pkg_install-20070714 audit-packages was re-written and merged
into the pkgtools/pkg_install package.  If you're running
pkg_install>=20070714 you should not have security/audit-packages
installed.  There was already a CONFLICTS line in pkgtools/pkg_install
to prevent this and I've also recently added a mirrored line in
security/audit-packages to prevent this from happening.
