Only about that in part, but also just taking random corrupted bits.
If you're not wrapping everything in your toolchain in crypto,
originating at and in the repo, the path the backdoored code takes
to you is bound to take gain hits sooner or later. On the plus side,
maybe those hits will neuter the backdoor sometime before the
seas boil. But you get the point.

If a given port doesn't have a package, maybe invest in committing the
build bits to your OS of choice so that it does.
