Cool, just get a copy of whatever tools he uses to scan the sources of
the packages he installs.  I mean, if he builds everything from source
and only from sources he "trusts", then he must have some kind of tools
for detecting back doors and other exploits, right?  Or at least buffer
overflows or unsafe privilege changes, right?  Right?

Go ahead, ask him!
