Patch to fix tape spanning in misc/amanda-server

There is a bug in Amanda 3.3.9 (that was not present in 3.3.6) in that it leaves dumps in the holding disk if the individual dump doesn't fit on one tape.

The bug is described in this thread from February 2016 and a patch is linked from there:


I tried the patch and it fixes the bug for me.

I have renamed it according to the patch naming scheme and it is attached to this bug.  It just needs to be added to the files directory.

Submitter is committer.  Assign accordingly.


Approved by: ports (tobik)

assuming this needs ports approval.  Make sure to bump PORTREVISION as well.
Since the maintainer has not responded for > 1 year, a reset of MAINTAINER
back to ports@FreeBSD.org is also in order.
