All the lines about which packages have vulnerabilities.  It wrote
nothing to standard output.

sudo /usr/obj/gdt-current/destdir/i386/usr/sbin/audit-packages  >A 2>B

B contains a line that some package has some vulnerability

(same happened without sudo, and with pkg_install from pkgsrc; but I
just updated and am in the middle of a base system rebuild, so this is
the code in -current)
