pkg-plist claims:


while Makefile via CONFIGURE_ARGS claims:


So, which one is it? It's the latter.

Make it so. Engage! Energize!

the amanda-client-3.3.9,1 bin package is compiled to require /usr/local/etc/amanda/security.conf but does not install it(!) - so, after an upgrade of a client-only (no amanda-server installed), all backups fail.
Comment 2 Trond.Endrestol 2017-06-09 20:45:40 UTC
(In reply to Gert Doering from comment #1)
Short term remedy is to do this on each client:

mkdir -p /usr/local/etc/amanda
touch /usr/local/etc/amanda/security.conf

I hope the maintainer decides on whether this files should be named amanda-security.conf or security.conf, and arranges for this file to be created iff(!) it doesn't exist on the clients.
Comment 3 Kubilay Kocak freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2018-03-09 03:58:53 UTC
non-committers are not assignee's/assigned, request maintainer feedback instead.

It appears 'amanda-security.conf' is the canonical name for the file [1], and is the filename that is used/isntalled by the build system (the port does not manually install it with a custom name).

I would suggest in the interests of user experience that the 'default' and well-known filename be used rather than a custom name.
