As per my previous email, installing on OS X is now the same as 
installing on Linux, FreeBSD, etc and gives you the added bonus of 
automatically adding the launchd plist (equiv of init/rc on Unix).

Not sure what I was thinking when I mentioned adding daemon accounts - 
of course this isn't necessary for bbackupd as it runs as root.

Regarding a "command line" on Mac - just run Terminal from 
Applications/Utilities in Finder. Drag it into your Dock for extra 
convenience. :-)
