Arpwatch consults an "ethercodes.dat" file to identify Hardware vendors.
The file contained in the arpwatch distribution is from 2006 and thus
outdated and misses many vendors.
It would be better if the arpwatch port could install a more current file.
The arpwatch distribution contains a script "massagevendor" which converts
the official list from http://standards.ieee.org/regauth/oui/oui.txt
into the correct format.
I'm not sure how this should be handled best. Either the port could simply
fetch and install the file during portinstall time, or an updated file
could simply be "shipped" in files/ as part of the port.
Assign to maintainer for evaluation
