[Box Backup] Mac OS X bbackupd compile

Hey all,

I'm trying to get a bbackupd client going on OS X 10.4 Tiger (Darwin
8.8.0) and while I can get it to compile, I'm getting a couple of
errors during the test phase.  I haven't really looked into but I
thought I would talk to you guys first and see if anything looked out
of place.  See my output below.

Also, I looked around for a pre-built binary (*.dmg) for OS X but
couldn't find anything.  Does anyone know if someone is building the
client out for Macs?  I'm also open to using Fink, sortta.  This is
going on a production machine (for my Children's school) and I'm not
sure about putting Fink on it.  However, I have it on my box and if I
can get it there and just move it over, I'm good with that.  :)
