Thank you! I think I have it working. Will have to test to be sure
it's working OK. I'm just curious...in two guides, written in 2006, I
found on the net use rpm to install. Did this change recently?

Yes, I tried creating a port once before for a new version of bacula
client. However I could never get it to work. That was a few years
ago. Maybe I need to try again.
