Taken from post October of last year:

   As per the ports(7) man page:

     DISABLE_VULNERABILITIES
                   If defined, disable check for security vulnerabilities
                   using portaudit(1) (ports/security/portaudit) when
                   installing new ports.

   i.e.:

   cd /usr/ports/www/mozilla
   DISABLE_VULNERABILITIES=1 make install

here is the post
