This is correct. It is not present in the ports tree.

You will have to do the port yourself or find someone who will do it for you.

OpenBSD is a very good operating system. This doesn't infer that there may not be occasions for some tool like Rootkit Hunter, but OpenBSD's development model & code audits are significantly more stringent than many other projects, so the need of such a tool is much lower.

I find references to Rootkit Hunter claiming compatibility to OpenBSD 3.4 & 3.5:

http://www.rootkit.nl/projects/rootkit_hunter.html

...but I do not find any information on why interest may have been lost.

As for the misc@ archives, most information there is also old, but you are welcomed to read through the posts yourself:

I just installed it on a VPS running 4.3 just to be able to reply to this post.

1) download the latest version (1.3.2 as of this writing) from sourceforge.
2) untar it to a directory of your choice
3) cd rkhunter-1.3.2
4) As per the instructions for the application, run

./installer.ch -layout customer . --install

This will install all of the rkhunter files into a single directory called "files".

5) change directory to the 'files' directory

cd files

5) run rkhunter-

./rkhunter --check


You should enjoy the success I've enjoyed. Pretty nifty program.
