The functions for creating temporary files and directories in the base library are quite limited. The unixutils package contains some good ones, but they aren't portable to Windows. This library just repackages the Cabal implementations of its own temporary file and folder functions so that you can use them without linking against Cabal or depending on it being installed.
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.
