You're using GCC v3, which is a little untested on OpenBSD, and 
probably not the latest version. It's only included on hppa because the 
v2.9x version most platforms use has issues which make it less hassle 
to use it than struggle with 2.9x.

And the OpenBSD developers don't use C++, so the C++ side of things 
doesn't get tested.

This is a good start to solving it. If that compiles, do "make clean" 
then "make" from the root of the distribution to continue with 
compilation. ("make clean" at root doesn't clean the modules which make 
up the distribution, which it should, but doesn't.)

You could also try building the entire thing in debug mode.

   cd bin/bbackupd

(make defaults to debug mode).
