$ /usr/sbin/pkg_info -V

There is no /usr/pkg/sbin/pkg_info and that /usr/pkg/sbin/audit-packages
doesn't support the -V option.

I've removed the old audit-packages package as it is older and
presumably obsolete.  It still concerns me that it finds
"vulnerabilities" the other didn't.

Having removed the old package the -Q option complaint disappears too.
