Here is an ebuild for backup2l.
I have tested it on x86 and amd64.
backup2l is a very small backup utility that has no dependencies.
It creates incremental backups, is up and running in a matter of seconds and it installs smoothly on many platforms.
Initially, I wrote the ebuild to call the install-sh script provided by the author but never submitted this ebuild. Now the ebuild does the same installation than the script.
The tar.gz is corrupted on some mirrors I think, so be patient when you install, it might take a few tries before it hits the right mirror ^^

ChangeLog for backup2l
In the ebuild, I do _not_ check if a cron system is available and copy zz-backup2l to /etc/cron.daily anyway.
Are there any plans to include this program into portage or an overlay? I used to use it in a previous linux installation and I found it to be a very good yet simple backup system. I like it because it's backups can easily be restored even without access to the backup2l program.
