Hello there

I'm fairly recent  to FreeBSD, and a issue regarding  the ports has come
up that is bothering me a little  (FreeBSD 4.9-RELEASE-p4 , i386).

I installed portaudit which has been warning me about a problem with the
mysql I have installed.

portaudit -a
Affected package: mysql-client-4.0.18_1
Type of problem: MySQL insecure temporary file creation (mysqlbug).
Reference: 
<http://people.freebsd.org/~eik/portaudit/2e129846-8fbb-11d8-8b29-0020ed76ef5a.html>
1 problem(s) in your installed packages found.


Although    this     bug    isn't     bothering    me     (chmod    0000
/usr/local/bin/mysqlbug), the fact that no port fix has come out is! :)

This is either due to:

a) a fix hasn't been applied to the port
b) I'm doing something wrong in the cvsup


Before today I  was inclinded for option  b), but I have  just updated a
few security related packages (png,rsync,...) using the same method, but
I'd like to be sure...

The steps I follow:

cvsup -L 2 supfile      
portsdb -Uu            
pkgdb -F
portversion -l "<"
portupgrade -r packages_to_upgrade


supfile:

Any comments/advice?


thanks in advance
