Already tried that, but that data only contains the list of known 
vulnerabilities, not the installed ports/packages.  Perhaps, its not 
using pkgng I discovered if I do a pkg info command I get the correct 
list of installed ports and packages.  If I do a pkg_info I get a much 
larger list showing everything as corrupted.

...
pkg_info: the package info for package 'fftw3-3.3.3_1' is corrupt
pkg_info: the package info for package 'filelight-4.10.1' is corrupt
pkg_info: the package info for package 'firefox-20.0,1' is corrupt
pkg_info: the package info for package 'fixesproto-5.0' is corrupt
pkg_info: the package info for package 'flac-1.2.1_3' is corrupt
pkg_info: the package info for package 'flex-2.5.37_1' is corrupt
...

Of course I have WITH_PKGNG="YES" in the make.conf, and I believe that 
has been there ever since the server was built.  Is my best option to 
get the correct list from pkg info use rm -r /var/db/pkg/* to clear 
everything out and then reinstall all of the ports?
