Description Patrick M. Hausen 2005-10-14 08:30:17 UTC
GNU tar was removed from the base system some while ago. Now,
when installing Amanda client, it's configure script doesn't
find GNU tar and disables support for it.


Install archivers/gtar first, then install Amanda client.
Suggested change: introduce a Makefile option to pull in GNU tar
as a dependency.
How-To-Repeat: cd /usr/ports/misc/amanda-client
make install clean

bowman# su -m operator -c "amcheck -c KARLSRUHE"
