I believe the reason that links are not followed is that mount points
are what is backed up, not directories.

I am working on all the documentation, and there are some man pages
checked into svn. Not all man pages, however. Check
http://boxbackup.hostworks.ca/index.php/DocProject for the current
status. I believe the man pages you want are bbackupd(1) and possibly
bbackupd.conf(5). Sadly, I have not gotten to those pages yet. I will
hopefully have some more time in early July to finish this up for 0.10.

If you are interested in helping, I'd love more participation.
