New ebuild for amanda-afs.
Amanda-afs is an extra package of tools in order to use AMANDA (tape backup) with AFS Volumes similar to the "vos backup" command.
I suggest app-admin/amanda-afs because amanda lives in app-admin/amanda. This ebuild depends on openafs, and there is a patch submitted so that Amanda with the afs USE flag will depend on this package.

Sync with upstream v0.0.4 and patch to compile.
Suggested location is now app-backup/amanda-afs to coincide with Amanda's move
The gentoo amanda ebuild isn't that useful without hacking, anyway to note
here's what I had to do to get the crontab to work, first assign a shell to user
amanda (/bin/false -> /bin/sh), then update /etc/cron.daily/amanda, replacing
DailySet1 with your profile:
NB: this is for a vtape setup, hence the mt command has been removed.
# check tapes, error is mailed to admin, then backup
su -c amanda "/usr/sbin/amcheck -t -m DailySet1 && \
( /usr/sbin/amdump DailySet1 )"
And to get it running ensure it has the executable bit set.
steve-o: please port for amanda-2.5 and give assurances that it is tested.
if there is no response in one month, I will be closing this bug as WONTFIX.
no response about porting this to 2.5 series.
Closing as UPSTREAM, please take it to them instead.
