OK, finally got around to updating the Portfile for MacPorts.  A  
temporary version that others can use for testing is at <http://svn.gizmolabs.org:8080/svn/gizmolabs/dports/sysutils/boxbackup/

Notes on the port:

configure still thinks its version 0.10:
	`configure' configures Box Backup 0.10 to adapt to many kinds of  

The install procedure is unaware of $DESTDIR, used for package-building

bin/bbackupd/bbackupd-config.in and bin/bbstored/bbstored-config.in  
still have '/usr/local' instead of $prefix hard-coded in

infrastructure/makedistribution.pl doesn't grab the perl path from  

Despite what ./configure says, paths like /etc/box and /var/bbackupd  
are still hard-coded into headers and such (sometimes only in comments/ 
help info, but still confusing).

As I believe someone else noted, the html docs aren't included in the  
tarball currently.

parcels/scripts/install-backup-client is getting a fifth line in it of  
format "install dir" (e.g. no file to be installed is there) which  
errors out the script.  Right now I'm manually deleting it doing "port  
patch; vi work/*/parcels/scripts/install-backup-client; port install"  
instead of just port install.

Any other comments, even from those unfamiliar w/ macports on the  
manual steps I'm having to take in the Portfile, would be appreciated.
