sounds worthwhile, maybe as check_packages in /etc/security?
There's already code for check_devices that checks for devices and setuid
files, and compares the list against the previous day, and prints diffs.
I guess adding something that compares an output of "ls -ld
/var/db/pkg/*/." shouldn't be too hard.
Of course checking more than the directory (pkg_info -BbSs, pkg_admin
check) comes to mind immediately after that... :-)
