I don't think you really answered the question, but I interpret your

forced upgrade to pkg_install that brings it back seems unfriendly.

I completely agree.

The old "audit-packages" package should not be removed before a "pkg_install"
which includes the "audit-packages" has been pulled up into at the least
the "netbsd-4" branch.

   Kind regards

Are we all talking about the same thing here ?

I was under the impression that Greg's issue was that we are depreciating security/audit-packages but not forcing an upgrade to an pkg_install version that has the replacement functionality. But here you're talking about an import into the NetBSD base system. What about all the non-NetBSD pkgsrc users ?

How will binary-only packages users handle it ? Will a pkg_install package
be build as part of the bulk builds ?

Off the top of my head I don't know what the impact of bumping PKGTOOLS_REQD will do to a bulk builds run as I don't do them that much, but I can dummy up a run tonight and see what happens.
