you don't to audit every package in debian, just the base software,
OpenBSD by default has very little installed, and of that only daemons
enabled by default are gaurenteed secure by them.  that leaves ls, cp
tar and whatnot.  a rough equivilent would be auditing priority
required and important pacakges in debian, not standard or higher.
that is probably manageable.
