thx for answering.
oke now it runs - i forgot to install some needed subpackages of 
xcode-tools... (there was just gcc installed - nothing else...)

another question:
i'm not so familiar with mac os x - what's the best way to start 
bbackupd after reboot?
should i create a startupitem under /Library or /System/Library/?
can somebody post an example for this please?
or is there a better/simplier way to start the daemon?
