It was pointed out to me that we already have 
src/share/man/man8/security.8. It says "NetBSD supports a variety of 
security features.  Below is a brief description of them with some quick 
usage examples that will help you get started."

Section 8 is normally for "system maintenance and operation commands", but 
now I see our NetBSD intro(8) also mentions "system maintenance 
procedures" -- I did not realize that. I was thinking it should be in 
section 7.

(As examples: OpenBSD's security(8) covers their /etc/security script like 
I previously wanted with my suggested MLINKS above; And FreeBSD's and 
DragonFly's security(7) covers an "introduction to security".)

So I will not create the MLINKS for security.8.

But I will also update security.8 to at least mention the daily 
/etc/security script and refer to security.conf.5 man page.
