You're probably right. If you wanted to, you could move the Linux
netbackup installation to /compat/linux/usr/openv/netbackup and put
the FreeBSD client in its proper location. The client is (probably)
necessary to do the catalog backups on the master server. In this
situation, the Linux master server would see the Linux client for the
catalog backups, but if you had to run the client for some other
reason, you'd get the native FreeBSD client.

Yes, but FreeBSD's Linux compatability should be able to handle this,
though it might need a little bit of help.
