AMANDA 3.3.9 as of r441897

misc/amanda-{client,server} as of r441897 fails to create the directory /usr/local/etc/amanda and an empty file named /usr/local/etc/amanda/security.conf. The client will fail during client checks and backup runs claiming:

failed: planner: [Can't get realpath of the security file '/usr/local/etc/amanda/security.conf': No such file or directory]

Here’s the remedy in the short run:

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

There is one additional issue, pkg-plist claims:

%%SERVER_ONLY%%%%ETCDIR%%/amanda-security.conf

while Makefile says:

--with-security-file=${ETCDIR}/security.conf

This file is needed on each client and the filenames must match.

Due to historical reasons, or is that hysterical raisins(?), /usr/ports/misc/amanda-server/Makefile.local contains

CONFIGURE_ARGS+=	--sysconfdir=/home
