add 405.pkg-base-audit for periodic/security

As I posted to mailinglist https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-security/2016-August/009049.html
VuXML allows to check base for vulnerabilities (thanks to Mark Felder) but there are no functionality in base or pkg to check it by periodic scripts.

I wrote one called 405.pkg-base-audit. It is heavily based on original 410.pkg-audit. It can check chroots and jails too.

Standalone script can be found at http://freebsd.quip.cz/script/405.base-audit.sh

I made a patch for ports-mgmt/pkg (we are using it on all our machines).
The patch is really simple just to add 405.pkg-base-audit to ports-mgmt/pkg/files. I don't want to touch anything in source pkg tarball. 
It is just a proof of concept. 
I am not sure it is coded well and if it can be included in official ports-mgmt/pkg or not.

Ooops, commented on the wrong PR, sorry.
Comment 3 Miroslav Lachman 2019-09-03 00:00:10 UTC
3 years later and nobody wants to check base for security vulnerabilities as is done for ports?
