pkglint checks whether a pkgsrc package conforms to the various conventions established over the years. It produces warnings, errors and notes and, upon request, explains them. Before importing a new package or making changes to an existing package, pkglint should be run in the package's directory to check for common errors. This is the current version of pkglint. Because it is written in go, it does not run on all pkgsrc platforms; see also pkglint4.
Binary packages can be installed with the high-level tool pkgin (which can be installed with pkg_add) or pkg_add(1) (installed by default). The NetBSD packages collection is also designed to permit easy installation from source.
The pkg_admin audit command locates any installed package which has been mentioned in security advisories as having vulnerabilities.
Please note the vulnerabilities database might not be fully accurate, and not every bug is exploitable with every configuration.
Problem reports, updates or suggestions for this package should be reported with send-pr.
